From YouTube: THINK ARLINGTON: Carol Rickard, Little
From the Think Arlington series of PSAs produced by AVN in collaboration with Arlington Economic Development, promoting Arlington County as a rich source of educated, high tech labor. This spot features Carol Rickard-Brideau of Little Architects.
Sustainable building is really it's sort of a trend right now, but it's funny because it's just smart design. I've been interested in being an architect since I was about ten years old. Probably initially, I was interested in becoming an architect because I realized that could create things as I got older. Once I started practicing.
I realized that architecture really affects the way that people live and it can literally transform people's lives of what we do as a firm is we look for the reasons beyond the architecture if I can deliver a space that helps school children learn more effectively. That's something! That's exciting. The bigger ideas beyond the architecture are wonderful. Arlington County actually employs a lot of the same principles that we do within our work and employs the principles of good design.
