“We shape our dwellings, and afterwards our dwellings shape us.” – Sir Winston Churchill
“A great building shouldn’t say here I am, it should say here you are, my friend” –Roger Winston Bray, Architect
We tread on forces; forces which shape us, and forces which we shape. We are constantly choosing. Our choices depend upon our outlook; they depend upon where we are centered. In other words, what is important to us, guides us.
As an Architect that was trained by a Master Architect, my professional concerns are for my clients and my staff; and for the advancement of new architecture, and the restoration and preservation of historic architecture.
Professionally, I just want to be and do my best in whatever situation I find myself in. I endeavor to guide my clients and staff for their precise and comprehensive interests, while honoring design principles that inspire, and achieve balance of beauty, performance, and economy for each individual project.
I believe that this works.
I believe that all of us, with our own unique endeavors, can improve our professions every day. And that our work does indeed, help to shape the world.
