Thank you Dana Bixby - Architecture, Trinity Engineering, and BEK Associates, for your generous donations of professional services.
We'd like to thank...

The Japanese architect, Tadao Ando, has said, “Every wall has two lives.” Architecture is about how we make openings in the walls around us or between us. Openings give us the possibility of moving. Openings help us see. Openings connect the world on two sides of a wall. When we move through a wall, we know more because we know both sides. In moving through space, along a path that is created, I am grateful when movement and space find each other because of a wall and its openings and we have discovered the excitement of architecture.
