NOMA magazine Fall 2013



My latest editorial effort is now available. The Fall 2013 National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA) Magazine is Fitting Into the New Economy.

The articles presented give stories and perspective on how today’s architects are weathering the storm. George Bandy, Jr. highlights USGBC’s expansion and opportunities created by a partnership with NOMA. Thalia Lewis sat down with Ted Landsmark to get his perspective and survival tips for today’s students, universities, and architects. Nenha Young reminds us of the importance of staying connected. Devanne Pena writes about how she coped with the “purgatory” between graduating and securing her first job. Deanne Van Buren encourages architects to look toward “design deserts” for new work, like she has done, while Megan Kent gives us an example of a firm doing just that. Garfield Peart describes his experience taking the ARE exam – a step many of us take to help secure our careers. Louis Smith reinforces the notion of knowing yourself in order to succeed.
