Green building has always intrugued me. The concept of building something that will sustain while helping the natural environment thrive is wonderful to me. The works of Ian McHarg, Laurence Halprin, Olmsted, Wright, Church, and many others have influenced me. Sustainablity is my main interest. I want to work on innovative designs that can educate and help to create a better future.
