See! This our father did for us.

“When we build, let us think that we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work as our descendents will thank us for; and let us think, as we lay stone on stone, that a time is to come when those stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, “See! This our father did for us.”” – John Ruskin

As Design Professionals, we have a unique responsibility, not just to our current clients, but to future generations that the words of John Ruskin are part of our Goals, Ambitions and Everyday Activities.

In future blogs, I will be discussing issues that are dear to me as a practicing Architect and Structural Engineer, ranging from Sustainable Building Design, Historic Preservation, Innovative New Building Materials and Innovative New Building Systems – some of which were developed at Reilly & Company.
