Recent projects include the METRO Light Rail Facility in Houston, the McAllen office for FBI resident agents and the RTRON Corporate Headquarters in Stafford. Houston, the base city for the practice, is not unique in its commodity and consumption gluttony. How to critically engage these issues becomes the nexus of each design problem?

This involves submission to those forces as authentic and as having cultural effect.
