    What a creative medium architecture is — part art, part vehicle for a raw need for a basic necessity. What a treat it is when practicality and beauty are blended into one, cohesive dwelling!

    Green and universal design are abiding interests of mine, as are historical architecture and preservation. Had I embraced math more fully in high school, I would have pursued architecture as a career. Instead, I will write about it. :)

    Two of my sons are showing an interest in architecture, are highly-creative and are very advanced in math (right- and left-brained tendencies can and DO co-exist!). I am trying my best not to influence their career path, but I would be thrilled to observe and perhaps one day collaborate on innovative buildings or homes.

    This building reminds me a bit of your Wellness Center in aesthetics. :)
