Question & Answer

Who is Your Dream Client & Why?

Someone who’s willing to engage in the design process and invest a bit of their treasure in a building that will serve them now and well into the future.

DC’s Most Iconic Building & Why?

The Jefferson Memorial. The dome is perfect. It’s a great space to view the National Mall. The view as you walk along the Tidal Basin with cherry blossoms in bloom is, in a word, inspiring.

Favorite Architectural Period?

The Beaux Arts period. In the U. S. many of the civic buildings of the late 1800’s and early 1900’s were done in this style. Union Station is a great example.

Favorite Architectural Style?

Most of my favorite buildings are Shingle style. There is a richness of materials and a sense of craft that stand out in these structures. They almost always include a large covered porch that reminds me of summers at the beach, where I grew up.
