Dear Alan, sadly, I must agree with you - we're in for a long haul of these rough times. It's definitely a period of change, being creative in new ways (making resources go further than ever before) and more and more goods and services being exchanged on a non-cash basis (swapping sites are popping up all over the place).
I wish you all the best and hope you can find new and rewarding ways to apply your talents and skills.
Thank you very much for your reply, Alan. Most of the photos on my page were taken by our official photographer (my son - he gives me a special rate!). Our offices are in London and Moscow, but I have been spending a lot of time in California to be with family lately.
I was very impressed by your attractive website, and even more so by the imagery - your firm seems to have won a major CG award last year. Congratulations! Your excellent work deserved it.
Hi Alan, thank you for the invitation to be your friend. I worked a few years in international hospitality projects, I have to say that this is the type of architecture I enjoy the most. I'm out of work right now, studing Revit while the economy stabilizes here in California, and I can get back to work. Good luck in everything!
