Ah yes, the public venue. Obrigada, Thank you.

LAND #development

People query me all of the time, “So what does an Architectural Historian do?” In face to face conversations, radio discussions, and on family occasions the discuss often leads toward an inquiry about the profitability, relevance, usefulness, of  a career dedicated to the history of architecture. I smile, noting that we all stand upon SheEarth, this is where we breath. The Architectural Historian invests in the land. Architectural History is for everyone. 

“…they had the bible and we had the land. Now we have the bible and they have the land.”

-Talib Kweli

It’s all about the LAND.
Investments in the community
Signify its relevance.
Recognition, insures cultural continuity, perpetuity;
Slammed up against the face of gentrification, remnants scattered everywhere –nothing new.

Since 2009 we have been committed to city farming practices, aka Urban Farming. This spring we have raised the stakes by investing in “blighted” West Atlanta. Fertile ground awaits us as we gather our resources to engage the development process, in our corner of the woods, we aim to restore order by transforming blight into light, Visioning the future.
