Option 1 Credit Union: Under Construction

Drawings are complete and construction has begun for the Option 1 Credit Union project with First Companies. It's a new tenant improvement for an Option 1 branch in the Metro Health Village. Stay tuned for future updates as the project is completed.

Young Designers

Rachel VanDyke asked me to be the guest critic for her Design II students at Northpoint Christian High. They did a unit on Architecture, with an assignment to design theoretical homes. They had some excellent work, both with their physical and computer models. We met at mid-term and for their final critique. It was great to see how their work and their thinking about the projects developed. Here are a few images from the final critique. Congratulations to all the students on their work; and to Rachel for doing an excellent job of teaching a very challenging subject.
