So Long For Now, Liza!

From the Iron Chef competition to the rejuvenating Third Thursdays, every part of my experience at Feldman Architecture this summer has been a thrilling challenge from start to finish, especially the occasional morning maneuvers through all of the office dogs.

Diving into a proposal for a project during my second week was an effective way to be put under the spotlight and face the real world. An unmatched opportunity to witness the progression of a collaborative design process, the many projects I helped out with were a true test to my ability to overcome challenges.

I would like to thank everyone, and especially Humbeen, for helping me learn through my stumbles and falls, and for making my experience so fun. I accrued a multitude of skills and a plethora of knowledge during the two and a half months of working at Feldman Architecture. For instance, I can now confidently say that I know how to disable the office alarm without frantically pressing all of the buttons. It has been a real pleasure to be a part of such a vibrant work environment.

Thank you for being such a wonderful team, I hope that I can cross paths with all of you in the near future. It has been a pleasure to get to know all of you !

Soberanes Fire Near Big Sur

This past weekend, Steven and I visited a few signature Feldman projects not far from the massive forest fires that hit Big Sur recently. As helicopters circled overhead, we became increasingly alarmed by the staggering severity of the crisis, which affected nearby areas but not any Feldman projects themselves. The affected area has grown to approximately 15,000 acres and while there are 1,500 firefighters working to mitigate the situation, containment currently stands at only at 5%. So far, no Feldman projects are at risk, but there’s been a call for voluntary evacuation of homes in the area. Two of our clients are full-time residents and are hanging in there, though their bags are packed for a quick exit should things get worse. It’s a sobering reminder about the power of nature, and the need to respect it. To stay up to date on developments, head over to http://www.fire.ca.gov/current_incidents .

LEAP Sandcastle Contest

A few weekends ago Feldman Architecture had the opportunity to partner with Kendall Wilkinson Design, Peninsula Custom Homes, and Strandberg Engineering in supporting Jefferson Elementary School with the construction of a sand sculpture at the 31st Annual LEAP Sandcastle Competition.

With a group of 50 children, volunteers, and coworkers our team, “Sands of Thyme,” shoveled sand, poured water, and sculpted delicious food in the form of a Picnic at the Beach for the “Food, Glorious Food” themed competition.  We extend a huge “THANK YOU” to Jefferson Elementary School and the many generous donors for collaborating in the wonderful event.  Can’t wait ‘til next year!
