WHY DID YOU JOIN AIA SEATTLE?
I’ve been a member of the AIA since 1987 and support AIA Seattle because this strong, dynamic chapter of Architect’s best professional organization is moving the industry forward every day.
WHAT IS THE VALUE OF AIA TO YOU?
The American Institute of Architects provides critical support to small, active firms like Rhodes Architecture + Light and brings design and sustainability to the public in ways no other organization can or is.
WHAT RELATIONSHIPS HAVE YOU CREATED?
My firm has brought good design, sustainability, greenspace, and wellness-centered design to hundreds of Puget Sound residents, businesses, and even a construction training council, creating friendships and long-term relationships along the way.
WHAT PROJECT ARE YOU WORKING ON NOW?
A long house in a forest glade west of Seattle.
HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN WHAT YOU DO FOR A LIVING?
I note that Architects listen and then create the instructions for a better-built world.
