Columbus and WSA Studio featured in national journal
I am very proud to be a part of a firm that gains its energy from Columbus. After practicing in Chicago, I find the interest in innovation in Columbus to be refreshing and accessible. The clients and patrons in Columbus and throughout our region are often looking to harness design to improve their bottom line or the human condition. That’s why our practice has been able to stay afloat all of these years….we certainly owe a great deal of credit to Columbus clients. And, that energy is being recognized on the national level. Columbus is a city that is finally starting to gain a national reputation for engaging living, innovation and creativity.
The September 2011 edition of Architect magazine features an area focus on Columbus and a project by WSA Studio was selected as one of three to be featured. Our Buggyworks Authentic Urban Lofts project was a highlight of trends towards downtown development. In the article, the final quote provides a strong recommendation for practicing in Columbus: “The additions in downtown Columbus haven’t come at the cost of the city’s noteworthy Midwestern charm. Columbus may be evolving through architecture, but it’s not changing, according to Tim Hawk, AIA, president of the local firm WSA Studio. ”That’s refreshing. That Columbus attitude makes me want to come into the studio each and every day.”
