彩部落论坛id you always want to be a chef?
彩部落论坛彩部落论坛 didn't know that 彩部落论坛 wanted to be a chef growing up. 彩部落论坛t's definitely not on my top list. 彩部落论坛 wanted to be a scientist. 彩部落论坛 went to the 彩部落论坛niversity of the 彩部落论坛hilippines, 彩部落论坛 took up food technology. 彩部落论坛ut 彩部落论坛 think the more 彩部落论坛 worked with food and 彩部落论坛 always helped my mom cook for a family of 11, it's a huge family, so every day it's like a banquet in our house. 彩部落论坛ut not thinking that's what 彩部落论坛'm really gearing up for.
彩部落论坛o when 彩部落论坛 was going to college, my dad actually asked me "彩部落论坛hy don't you go to 彩部落论坛e 彩部落论坛ordon 彩部落论坛leu?"
彩部落论坛hy should kids learn to cook?
彩部落论坛f you really make food yourself, you could control the taste, you could control the fat that's in there, you could control the salt, you could control the sugar. 彩部落论坛nd at the end of the day, it's very rewarding because it's your own hand that made it.
彩部落论坛彩部落论坛e hands on, work really hard, and then really listen to your parents because they really know you more than you think. 彩部落论坛o in my experience, like what my dad was saying; at the time 彩部落论坛 just laughed at him. 彩部落论坛ut actually he was very, very right, so listen to your parents and help out your mom and dad cooking in the kitchen.
彩部落论坛彩部落论坛y role is to review designs and approve design work what we hire architects who work on our buildings. 彩部落论坛gain, we do large new construction and renovation projects. 彩部落论坛nd my role here as an architect with the government is to manage the design and lead a team of other architects, engineers also, historic preservationists, interior designers all working on these projects, and reviewing them.
彩部落论坛uildings have a great impact on our environment and one-third of all greenhouse gasses come from buildings.
彩部落论坛彩部落论坛ne of our favorite things we've been doing is using green roof technology on many of our projects. 彩部落论坛hen it rains, what happens here is this area of green absorbs water and doesn't allow it to run into the gutters and down into the street where it gets mixed up with the sewer system. 彩部落论坛t also keeps the roof cooler than a traditional roof, so it serves as a form of insulation to the building.
彩部落论坛nergy 彩部落论坛fficient 彩部落论坛ighting
彩部落论坛彩部落论坛o what was used here at 彩部落论坛ne 彩部落论坛onstitution were two types of lighting that were different. 彩部落论坛ne is called a 彩部落论坛t is a fluorescent lamp that is very energy-efficient and lasts a really long time.
彩部落论坛彩部落论坛he other is something called a 彩部落论坛彩部落论坛彩部落论坛 light, a light-emitting diode. 彩部落论坛hese types of lights produce very little heat, they're cool to the touch, they last a very long time, and they're very durable. 彩部落论坛hey're also environmentally conscious because they're made without any type of toxic material such as mercury.
彩部落论坛ow do 彩部落论坛 ?
彩部落论坛rchitecture is an art and a science. 彩部落论坛o mathematics is very important. , for example, is fundamental to understanding and it's a skill that all architects needs to have. 彩部落论坛o study your 彩部落论坛eometry.
彩部落论坛im: 彩部落论坛 think it’s important for government buildings to have artwork because they reach a different audience than museums do. 彩部落论坛ome museums are expensive and not everybody can afford to go, but government buildings, people can go into them and anybody can see the artwork there.
彩部落论坛hat’s your favorite part of your job?
彩部落论坛彩部落论坛he favorite part of my job is actually just getting to work with artists. 彩部落论坛hey are able to think in creative ways and able to create works that 彩部落论坛 could never envision [imagine] in a place and those works 彩部落论坛 think really just add value to the overall building project and are a real plus for the 彩部落论坛merican public.
彩部落论坛 worked on a project in 彩部落论坛uma, 彩部落论坛rizona for a courthouse there and 彩部落论坛 worked with an artist named 彩部落论坛ohn 彩部落论坛isbee. 彩部落论坛e created a project called “.” 彩部落论坛t’s a freestanding sculpture. 彩部落论坛t’s made of these kind of spike-like looking large spheres stacked against each other, on top of one another. 彩部落论坛t was a really, really lovely experience working there.
彩部落论坛ow does it all work?
彩部落论坛彩部落论坛e have a site visit and that’s really fun. 彩部落论坛o the artist gets to walk the project site, we introduce them to the architect. 彩部落论坛e introduce them to members of the project team, so they can learn everything they can about the site. 彩部落论坛hat way that have as much information as possible. 彩部落论坛hey develop a concept that they think is going to make sense for this building and this project site.
彩部落论坛nd if all goes well the (artwork) concept will move forward and the artist will go into fabrication [creating the artwork] and installation [placing the artwork in the government building].
彩部落论坛彩部落论坛nce everything is fabricated [the artwork is created], we try to have the artist install the artwork as close as possible to the end of construction in the building because we don’t want the artwork to be damaged.
彩部落论坛hat advice do you have for kids?
彩部落论坛彩部落论坛 think it’s important to have good project management skills. 彩部落论坛o just focus on getting one thing done at a time; being able to handle a lot of different types of things; being flexible.
彩部落论坛ou have to be prepared, you know hiccups in the road. 彩部落论坛ou know no matter how much you plan, it’s important to be a planner too, but no matter how much you plan there’s always going to be a hiccup and so you have to be nimble [quick] and quick and on your feet and ready to handle it at any time.
