Between episodes: Three architecture-focused resolutions for 2017

There are three things I pledge to do in 2017.

  1. Visit Frank Lloyd Wright’s Gordon House in Silverton, Oregon
  2. Tour Alvar Aalto’s Mount Angel Abbey Library nearby.
  3. Write more content for the site.

It’s astonishing that these two architects have two projects so close together – both under an hour away from Portland and each minutes from each other. The Gordon House was originally going to be destroyed by clueless owners (not the original owners) but was saved and moved.

Here’s more about Aalto’s library. Read here the history of the Gordon House.

So that third resolution? Yep, I need to create more content for the site. Sure. I still plan on producing the Built Blocks podcast each month but want to complement the site with posts in between. Here’s the latest episode. Give it a listen.

And, if you’re interested in appearing on future shows, contact me.

Happy New Year.
