I have received a commission from the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority Metro Creative Services to design a set of canopies for one of the L.A. Silver Line stations. This is one of my proposed designs.

I was interviewed by CUNY TV for a feature called Study with the Best. My short segment starts at about 17:30 minutes into the program. It is followed by an interview with Robert Hickman who designed and fabricated the elegant and understated West 72nd St. Subway Station project. After him there’s a segment on Lucy McKenzie, a young Scottish artist who is very interesting.

I visited Amsterdam in January. Here are a couple of photos taken in Rembrandt’s House. He lived here for nineteen years at the height of his success (1639-58). But he must not have been very good at managing money because in nineteen years he managed to pay off less than half his mortgage. He ended up bankrupt losing the house and all the household goods, moving to a smaller house where he lived the rest of his life.
