Arizona's Rocks and Plants

  • My building designs usually include at least schematic thinking for landscaping.
  • I treat window views like fine art. Like a painting, the immediate outdoor perimeter to building offers a "middle ground", and the distant views offer a "background". Of course the interiors serve as the "foreground". In composition, it all works together. 
  • Thinking sonoran is also all about local materials(another aspect of my work). Born in Phoenix, my preference for "local" is intuitive.
  • This image was taken in the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix(Arizona rocks, boulders, crushed granite, exposed aggregate concrete finish,  and native plants).
