As promised here’s a look at the first team’s proposal for a re-envisioned Fair Park. The team members include James Banda (Dallas Office – Healthcare Architecture, Becky Luthman (Chicago Office – Healthcare Interiors), Clayton Holmes (Dallas Office – Commercial/Hospitality), and Bart Mangold (Student, SCAD). What if you could layer activities across the entire park and create an entirely new identity? See what the “Stroll” team says:
HKS was named the #1 Best Place to Work in Los Angeles by the Los Angeles Business Journal (LABJ). The company was recognized at an awards luncheon at the JW Marriott Los Angeles on August 16, 2012, where Associate Niel Prunier was present to accept the award for HKS.
Hunter told the audience that the firm’s LA office has grown 50% in 18 months by doing diverse projects. Not all are large-scale, but developers are starting to scout for projects, and the market is coming around slowly. However, the financial condition of government clients is still a concern. Case in point, HKS was awarded a major renovation of the federal building in Westwood, only to have the GSA pull the plug.
As a designer, Lisa Adams is compelled to improve the lives of others.

Thomas Jefferson, the great American President and architect, addressed the concept of intergenerational remote tyranny – the idea that one generation might pollute the earth and destroy the ability of future generations to celebrate its abundance. He penned a letter to his colleague James Madison in 1789 that stated the following:
This is less a question to be answered directly, but rather a provocation for a conceptual business model for the continuation of the architectural profession. I believe that this concept is interesting for HKS in that HKS is interested both in the innovation of architecture [the built environment] and the longevity of the firm itself. I would, therefore, not be looking for a direct answer, but rather a moment of reflection for the future of the architectural profession and how we [architypes] might secure our longevity and relevance in a dynamic and ever-changing political and economic landscape.
