Inspiration is the Highest Form of Flattery

Something really exciting happened the other day, this fantastic writer from The Atlantic, Garnet Henderson, called me up and asked to do an interview about a project from 2006.  Her home town, Jackson Hole, Wyoming was the inspiration for this upscale community of vacation homes in the rural hills about two hours outside of Beijing, China.  This project was one of the toughest and most rewarding I have ever done.  It was such an amazing feeling to read this article and know that somebody gets it; she captured the spirit of this project and highlighted the rustic, wild-west feeling and my desire for authenticity.  The emotions from the journey of designing this community were all brought to light by her beautiful article.  You can check out the article here.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did, please feel free to comment here on this blog, my Facebook, twitter, or on the article itself.  Stay tuned for the next edition of Streetwise, a blog highlighting my adventures in China, coming out soon.  Thanks for stopping by!
