Living in the house I designed for my family has allowed me to better appreciate the visual pleasures of architecture--captured light and space, framed views, interior space juxtaposed with landscape. For me, architecture is a way of life. It provides intellectual engagement, rich opportunities for relationships with people and opportunities to improve the "craft" of building. The greatest pleasure in my working life is to personally engage with clients to imagine the possibilities for architecture in their lives and for their institutions. I strive to provide personable leadership to clients and design teams, to build consensus, to address the complexities of competing interests within groups and to persistently follow a project's development from the design dream to its architectural reality. I value the relationship I hold with each client, the challenges of sustainable designs for their buildings, and the opportunity to shape the strategy for the future of Shepley Bulfinch.

      Meetup does not have a waitlist for this event. Suffolk may. If you prepaid you can offer your ticket at whole or reduced rate to someone on Meetup. That said I would love if you are able to attend.

    On a flight today and there are unanticipated holdups. Is there a waiting list? Would someone else be able to take my spot?

    When you go down Tremont St you can take a left onto School Street travel for one block, then take a left onto Washington St. On your left side on Washington Street there will an entrance to a parking garage. The entrance is right before the Dunkin Donuts. Evening parking is 12.00. Then you just have a short walk to Tremont and to Suffolk Law School.

    Kathy, any idea about where we can park? I've got to google directions and I'll be coming from work (Dedham) or home (Needham).

    Update: 1. If you prepaid for the class you will have already received an e:mail from Suffolk with additional information and a 65 page powerpoint handout. Based a quick look, they have great information that is presented in an easy to understand way!!
    2. Please keep your RSVP up to date. Since I have a smart phone even if you cancel minutes before the event, it helps me out. Looking forward to seeing all of you and learning with my IM peeps. :-)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
