How long have you done this? The TAAP firm was established in 1985, I have been a registered architect since 1965 (New York).
What is most rewarding about this project? The privilege of participating with a team dedicated to the stewardship of one of the most important buildings in New England. It is a project where I continue to learn, not only from my colleagues, but from the structure itself.
Much of our professional experience has involved both additions to and rehabilitation of landmark buildings, as well as the design of museums and exhibit spaces. The Old State House, working with you all at The Bostonian Society, gives us the opportunity to bring that diverse experience to the effort.
