• We are pleased to note a recent endorsement:












    Congratulations to all the new Fellows of the American Institute of Architects, but especially to four with whom I’ve had the pleasure of working closely: Mehrnoush Arsanjani, FAIA, Hans Baldauf, FAIA, Mark R. Miller, FAIA, and Mark Ripple, FAIA.

    Fellowship Four










    I also had a hand in nominating the Monterey Bay Aquarium for the 2016 AIA 25-Year Award, and subsequently was asked to write a personal reflection for Topic A, the AIA’s new public-oriented blog. The quotations from Chuck Davis in my reflection are from an interview Yosh Asato did with him for arcCA, the quarterly journal of the AIA California Council, which I edited from 2000 to 2012. This beautiful aerial photo of the aquarium is by Steve Proehl, who’s based in Sebastopol, California.
