LEADERSHIP FORUM RECAP

TOPIC: THE BUSINESS OF IDEAS

 

Marlon Blackwell, FAIA

Principal, Marlon Blackwell Architects

 

What is the value of what we do and how do we prepare ourselves to deliver that value? Instilling a desire to ask questions is critical to the practice of architecture. The lowercase “a” intentions design grounded in reality; made of common things through practical means. That level of questioning will lead to a sense of purpose that can translate through the built environment; delivering to the client what they need, and more.

- Matt Petr, LF16

TOPIC: LEADERSHIP PERSPECTIVE

 

Kevin Montgomery, FAIA

President, COO and Director of Architecture,  O'Brien/Atkins

 

“Architecture is not about buildings, it is about people.” - Kevin Montgomery

 

Mr. Montgomery’s ideas about leadership are inseparable from his core motives and values in the field of architecture—and as a human being. He brings conscious awareness to core values of compassion, integrity, and communication to his role as a leader of teams and in relationships with clients.

- Michael K. Mills, LF16

Turan Duda, FAIA

The cultured skill of recognizing the method to connect with clients is the element that elevates design by educating the client on the systems, materials, or methods. With a better education of the client, there is a better built team environment.
