What does Architecture mean to you, or your community?

Architecture is our built record for the senses – our world through a visual and experiential narrative. I am always amazed how it has the power to capture memories of light, shadow, shade, and texture.

What would you like to see invented in your lifetime?

No doubt it would be the Hyperloop. NY to LA in a couple hours, would be revolutionizing
