My favorite hangout at Rhode Island
is the Tap Room in Memorial Hall and the soft couch of Cable Car.
My vivid memory of RISD
is Eddie, Mihai Nadin and The Breakers; Michael Hays still had red hair and St. Florian before the WWII Memorial; Machado/Silvetti’s Steps of Providence; Rare books in Athenaeum; Benefit Street autumn foliage; Inspiration and desperation from the first light into BEB after an all nighter; Sleep deprived and slept 36 hours straight after the final crit.
My advise(s) to prospective students
is RISD is the Reason I Still Dream.
What occupies me now
is Complexity and Contradiction, Venturi should learn from HK instead of Las Vegas; Kowloon walled city and HSBC Headquarters).
My next big move
is to see Hong Kong is a City of ingenious creativity and is the place to make a difference where it only takes a few to change.
