“As architects, we not only have an opportunity to change our environment through carefully crafted design, we have an opportunity to influence the way people think and live. We have a responsibility to learn more ourselves and use that knowledge to better serve our clients by offering them a wealth of possibilities of which they could not have dreamed.”
