Our first newsletter of 2016 is ready for viewing, HERE. From top to bottom, it tracks north to south – from the dense center of downtown Greenville, to the southern edge of Falls Park, to suburban northern Anderson, then finally to rural Belton. Intentional or not, the ordered distinctives of the architect’s manner are evident even in newsletter article arrangement.
Frequent pacing, finger nail biting, eyebrow stroking, kneading sweaty palms. Those are the tendencies one can expect on the second floor of 19 Washington Park in these final hours leading up to Clemson’s Monday night shot at a national title and a perfect 15-0 record. Pictured is the office’s Tiger contingency – all sporting some combination of orange, awaiting tonight’s bout in the desert. A solid majority of CGD is ALL IN. Go Tigers!
Matthew Krider, one of CGD’s 2015 summer and holiday break interns, departed Wednesday for a semester abroad in Genoa, Italy. A junior in Clemson’s School of Architecture, he continues a long tradition of the Clemson branch of the CGD family spending a semester on the Ligurian Sea. Pictured in the airport ticketing lobby with Krider is his future bride, Alexis. By assigning the perfunctory and completely believable intern oriented task of ascending to a downtown Greenville rooftop at night with a tape measure and camera, CGD was honored to play an underhanded role in Krider’s surprise rooftop proposal over the Christmas break.
