    I've built, and restored many homes, however the pinnacles of my experience would be: first, Bobby Kennedy's Villa on St Thomas, a Frank Lloyd Wright creation, with decor splashed in Gold and Marble, but it wasn't just the luxury, the buildings themselves were a marvel of...

    I Love It

    I wanted to be an architect I have always been interested in it.  Sadly I was not good at drawing or at mathematics. Nevertheless I love architecture especially architecture from 1950 onwards and of course all the projects being constructed in Dubai.

    Moved By Mies Van Der Rohe

    About eleven years ago I lived in Brooklyn in NYC, and my landlord there had been a student of "Mies".  He spoke very fondly of his old teacher.  He was probably the most outgoing landlord I ever had, and that was certainly the most charming apartment I ever...

    Towns and Cities

    There are a few cities that I like going to just to look at the buildings, plantations: Chicago, New York, New Orleans, Miami etc. While there are towns that are making laws to promote better more interesting architecture (brain fart... forgot the 2 towns that I know of). I...

    Still One Of My Favorites.

    For a brief time, the Chrysler Building in New York City was the tallest building in the world when it was completed in 1930. A stunning beauty to this day, I have always been taken by the style and grace of this work of art standing proud in Manhattan. Fortunately, I have...

    I Take Pictures Of Buildings A Lot

    One of my favourite subjects to photograph are buildings. Buildings can almost feel like huge robots with a personality. They house people, and so they seem almost alive, teeming with life and activity, but modest. I'm probably sounding a bit over-the-top now. Sorry, I just...
