In the past, I’ve had the opportunity to interview some of California’s creative designers and architects.  Meet the great minds behind the design…

Kenneth Brown

RM: What would be your dream project?

KB: A neighborhood development that allows each house to have a unique style.  Why do all developments still look cookie cutter after all these years?  I hope people soon realize that individuality is worth spending more money for.

Gary Gibson

Renee Massaro: Do you feel being a native Angelino affects your design perspective?

Gary Gibson: Absolutely!  Growing up in SoCal gave me a lasting love of nature, texture, the outdoors.  I think that is why interiors tend to be casual, functional and elegant.

John Southern


RM:  Where do you see yourself in the next 10 years?

JS:  My hope is that I’ll be able to be involved with more community-oriented projects like the pocket park I’m doing here in Silver Lake.  Its projects like it that actually have a positive impact on urban life, and I think that’s part of my professional responsibility as an architect.  Teaching is a central love of mine and I hope to stay engaged with academia as long as I can.  With regards to my practice, I’d love the opportunity to do more design work both on a residential and commercial level.
