Every year, Jensen Design Architects participates in community service or pro bono projects. These projects are not only fun but inspiring. Over the years, our community service projects have included working on an orphanage in Tijuana, Mexico, a Catholic church in New Orleans (about 9 months after hurricane Katrina), several churches around Seattle and attending the Community Enhancement project for NAIOP. Last year we helped the YMCA in Preston, Washington. In this photo, I am working with Touchstone and Mortenson Construction to help build a fence (yes – power tools!) We look forward to the next NAIOP Community Enhancement project coming up on September 24th at New Start High School and Salmon Creek Campus in south Seattle.
One of the highlights of my career was working with Robert A. M. Stern, one of the top US architects. I had admired his work for many years and so it was with great pleasure when our firm was selected to collaborate with RAMSA (as his firm is called) on a monster project called the Resort at the Meadowlands, located in New Jersey, directly across the Hudson River from New York City.
