“Do continue to believe that with your feeling and your work you are taking part in the greatest; the more strongly you cultivate this belief, the more will reality and the world go forth from it.” - Rainer Maria Rilke

QH[W

All great work is the product of valuable insights, wisdom and criticism. Please feel free to send me any thoughts, comments or additional insights on how to improve this or any future “design memo.” I hope this serves as a generator of creativity and conceptual agility to be harvested at the intersection of architecture, urbanism and landscape.

Lastly, I wanted to thank my wife for her unyielding support, friendship and love.
