Coming to an office building near you – what a breath of fresh air!

Starting off as an architect, my first experience of an office building was an older brick industrial building, with operable windows, located near the river in a mid-sized southern city. I have a vivid memory of working to finish a deadline on a summer evening. - James Puckhaber, AIA
