MY MISSION

To help create an operational and physical environment where the tactical is created from a continuously redefined strategy; an environment that anticipates and thrives on change rather than reacting to it, and one that is driven by an organization that operates out of intelligence not arrogance.

MY PHILOSOPHY

The management of an environment is inextricably linked to the organization of the physical environment.  They must be considered together as components of the same problem, and always in the context of continuous change. 

In the creation of an effective environment [whether physical or organizational] there can be no short-cuts, no standard details, no rule books, or for that matter no preconceptions of any kind.  Each solution is its own paradigm.

In the words of Louis Sullivan “Form follows function”.  In my words; a building’s design, its form, is only successful if it first responds to real world of the built environment and to the end user’s program.

Aesthetics of a building are only one of many considerations for an Architect, including but not exclusive to; site, climate, budget constraints, life cycle costs, possible changes in future program requirements, and legal requirements. Aesthetics must always be considered in the context to support the end user’s program.

The practice of Architecture is an “Art” in the strictest definition of the word, but the discipline of the practice of Architecture and the creation of "successful" Architecture, begins and ends with the "successful" satisfaction of needs [the program] of the end user not the creation of an "Art" object.
