Our proposal for the Hudson’s Department Store site in downtown Detroit can be summarized as a collection of action triggers purposely bundled into one dynamic mixed-use development. Specific programs were selected and blended with the purpose of promoting a dynamic exchange amongst people, a fertile ground for innovation, and a new urban entrepreneurial spirit that will attract people back to the urban city core. Highlights of that program include a series of business incubators in the form of towers, a dynamic market place in the form of a base, a hotel and diverse range of housing options, also in the form of a tower, and common areas of social exchange in the form of a climate-controlled and daylight shell between the volumes.
This exhibit aims to showcase the work and talent of Austin Latino architectural professionals and designers during the 2011 celebrations of National Hispanic Heritage Month. The exhibit will take place at the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center (MACC).
Opening night is scheduled for Friday October 7th (5:30-7:00PM) with opening remarks by Juan Cotera, FAIA. We hope you’ll be able to attend.

“Best of Year” award for healthcare product design from Interior Design magazine.
A bit over a year ago, I had the oportunity to be the principal concept designer for David Edward’s new Grand Island Sofa, a product aimed at hospital room environments with a very specific program
and functional requirements. The project had been shelved after several years, and was brought back
to life when somebody mentioned I had a furniture design background and experience.
The product was recently released on the market this past summer 09 with great success.
