On financial transparency -  To me there are three primary reasons for being transparent about how your business is doing with staff. First, your staff is critical to the success of your business. If they don’t know where you’re going, they can’t help you get there. The second is if you’re not giving someone accurate information, they will likely make up their own facts and act on what they think is happening. Establishing that level of transparency puts everyone on the same page. And finally, as we nurture staff to move up and mature in their career, they inevitably have a greater impact on the business side of design. And so the more tools you can give them to understand the financial side, the better they will do as they take on project manager roles and gain those skills. It’s creating a foundation for success. - Jenifer Navard, Principal and Director of Finance [Jenifer, in her role as Director of Finance, is crucial to not only managing the financial health of the practice, but communicating that health to our staff. Last year she presented at PSMJ on a topic most companies know is important, but rarely know how to execute: financial transparency.

On inspiration in architecture – A lot of my inspiration comes from movies, particularly science fiction movies.  I still remember the experience of watching ‪Blade Runner‬ as a kid, which has its own immersive architecture.  It’s familiar, but it’s strange. I visited the location featured in the finale of the movie much later, which is just this beautiful building in LA known as the Bradbury Building. It’s what I’m drawn to in my personal aspirations for my work, when I’m looking for inspiration. Similar to how movies function, I try to create an experiential narrative in my work. Some of it was inspired by Douglas Darden, and a project I did in architecture school that set up an unusual framework to talk about familiar experiences. It can ultimately force you to think about things a little differently. - Gianna Morelli, Designer [Gianna’s work blends the familiar with a modern vision of the future. Featured are a photo of the building she visited featured in the end of Blade Runner, the Bradbury Building, as well as conceptual drawings from her M.C. Escher inspired series of underground cities. She is one of the designers working on “The Exchange,” a new mixed-use development in downtown Salt Lake City, featuring a diverse mix of food, retail, and the next location for the coworking platform “The Shop.”] #designersattheirdesk #workplacewednesdays #conceptual #mcescher #designinsp #eskewdumezripple #architecture #design
Winner winner! AIA Louisiana Honor Award for interior architecture!  #repost @eskewdumezripple with @get_repost ・・・ Our design for @tsunamineworleans took inspiration in part from Japanese "Wagara" (traditional patterns regarded as symbols of good luck and prosperity) in creating screening elements and textured surfaces that lend intimacy to spaces in the restaurant while maintaining visual connections between diner and sushi chef, patron, and pedestrian. Very proud to announce it has been awarded an AIA Louisiana Honor Award for interior architecture!  #tsunami #sushi #interiordesign #interiorarchitecture #hospitalitydesign #aia #honoraward #architecture #design #eskewdumezripple #restaurantdesign

On energy efficiency and an integrated team -  If you look back at the history of architecture, and the way we’re trained, and the way the profession has evolved, we spend so much time thinking about the experience of a space—how to create it and morph it.  Typically, in the past, anything that couldn’t be seen we delegated to someone else, often engineers. We would ask them to make the building stand, make it comfortable, and we’ve historically focused on how things look visually. More and more, though, we’ve realized that’s not a sustainable way of looking at the profession. With energy modeling, you need everyone on board from the beginning. Architectural, electrical, mechanical, structural, it all needs to be taken into consideration, and you need someone that intimately understands all four to make buildings that perform better. When teams working together and speaking together make energy a priority, we’re more aware of its impact, and empower ourselves to control it. For too long in design it was an afterthought. - Waleed AlGhamdi, Sustainability Enabler [Waleed, as our Sustainability Enabler, is tasked with the often technical challenge of energy modeling for our buildings, running analyses to understand the impact different schemes have on the performance of our designs. To this end, he challenges our teams to marry the development of high performance, energy efficient buildings, with aesthetic considerations. Pictured are his visualizations run for a recent energy study on designs for a new building construction in Mississippi.] . . . #designersattheirdesk #workplacewednesdays #eskewdumezripple #architecture #design #buildingcommunity #energymodeling #sustainability #ecofriendly #energyefficient
Our pavilion design at the reimagining of Miller Park, a project led by our landscape partner @spackmanmossopmichaels. The pavilion, as part of the larger urban restoration endeavor, is an ideal location for both community events and—as pictured from its grand opening several weeks ago—music performances!

🌳 Bird's eye view of Miller Park, the new centerpiece of the rapidly developing Innovation District in downtown Chattanooga, TN. The park was designed by our client @spackmanmossopmichaels with collaborators @eskewdumezripple and @hkarchitects. Extensive community input resulted in an inclusive, flexible, and open space where residents can come together for a wide variety of programming and events. 🍃 Photo courtesy of Spackman Mossop Michaels. . . . . . . . . . #millerparkcha @downtownchatt @cityofchattanooga #landscapearchitecture #publicspace#urbandesign #nooga #gigcity #spackmanmossopmichaels #eskewdumezripple #millerpark #chattanooga #tennessee #tn #landscape #landscapearchitecture #architecture #urbanplanning #urbandesign #urban #park #parkdesign #design
On perspective in design -  I’m intrigued by the way in which design can be a synthesis of diverse areas of thought. My background is in ecology and perceptual science, and also architecture and studio art. In all of my design work so far, I’ve strived to bridge those different areas of thought and form something provoking. Perceptual science, and studying depth perception, inspired an architectural studio and a structure that takes an understanding of the way we sense our world and pushes it to a more personal reflection. I think the common thread is understanding people, and what it means to be human, from many perspectives. When we do that, we can design for these perspectives, and make a more enjoyable, natural, and compelling experience. - Sam Gochman, Research Fellow [Sam’s work bridges biological and perceptual sciences in expanding our understanding of the built and natural environment. Check out his latest blog post on our website, which recounts his takeaways from International Design Conference 2018, which explored a wide range of design practition and what it means to design for people at http://bit.ly/10TakeawaysfromIDC.] . . . #designersattheirdesk #workplacewednesdays #eskewdumezripple #research #design #architecture
"Fellows in the Field," a podcast by our Research Fellows, is officially official, and you can now find all three episodes on both Spotify and iTunes! The work explores architecture at the intersection of science and humanity.

Scenes from our 2018 PARK(ing) Day installation! This year, with our Research Fellows Sam Gochman and Hannah Berryhill leading the charge, our team constructed the EDR "Sonic Sanctuary." The constructed piece asked how we might improve our urban soundscape with two strategies within a wooden cube: an enclosed space that uses acoustic foam to offer respite from the noisy urban environment and an open space to amplify more pleasant alternatives to urban noise like our guest musicians! . . . #parkingday #parkingday2018 #eskewdumezripple #architecture #design #neworleans #followyournola #2018parkingday
