I want to design beautiful things! Who doesn’t want to live around them?
I always enjoy spending time talking about architecture with people who aren’t architects. Spending time lately with my new nephew, my brother-in-law and I were talking and he expressed ‘You know, your work is really about combining art with real construction details.’ I like that architecture is becoming more apparent in the world to those around me!

Architecture Record describes it as three nesting boxes. I tend to be intrigued by mazes, like the thought of designing a house without doorways, and stepped one foot into the door of my own design at my parents house, when I began breaking rooms apart with planar walls, instead of cutting holes into them and using bulkheads to define a room.

A flair of Mardi Gras still lives in the dining room to remind my family of our festive Louisiana days.
Forte, Gimenes & Marcondes Ferraz Arquitetos The Grid House, suspended above ground with maze like roof top garden. I read about it on ArchDaily and can’t get enough of these elevated gardens, so magical, forest-like, and necessary.
