we heart architects

 

cincinnati enquirer, july 30, 1965

What an architect means to us?!  Where do I start?   I found this little nugget during a deep dive researching Richard Peacock, the original designer of our Clifton listing at 843 Clifton Hills Terrace.  1965.  A time when good design was valued.  And celebrated.  When the local paper covered local architecture.  Sigh.  

On a happier note, and completely coincidentally, the top photo in this picture is Siddall Hall, the dormitory where I lived my freshman and sophomore years at the University of Cincinnati.  In the foreground is the Siddall Caffeteria where Arlen and I met in 1980. The designer of our soon to be unveiled NEW WEBSITE, Pam Roberts, founder of Zero-Gravity Solutions, lived right down the hall from me in the dorm.  Although we had no idea at the time, the good design was not lost on us!
