As an architect, believe it or not, you don't know it all. So, what I do, when a client calls me, is listen to them first. I listen to their dreams. Because, they are the ones who have brooded about a dream that they have. And as an architect, you have to listen to them and interpret what they are trying to accomplish. WENDELL T. GREEN, AIA, NOMA

PART 2 | February 23, 2023

Part 2 features Kimberly M. Mobley, AIA, NOMA – Project Architect for Brownstone Construction Group in Charlotte, NC, and is moderated by Joy Cunningham of VANOMA. Among the many thoughts Kimberly shares, she makes sure to impress upon the audience to maximize their potential.

Cultivate a team with the kind of influence and encouragement that you can be the best you can. Create a situation where you can maximize your potential. KIMBERLY M. MOBLEY, AIA, NOMA
