A peculiar but welcome phenomenon exists at Lake|Flato: We are home to the highest concentration of architectural interns named “Josh” in the City of San Antonio. I sat down with Josh Nieves, Josh Leger, and Josh Lamden (also known around here as J1, J2, and J3, respectively) to talk about their experiences as interns at Lake|Flato. Read on to find out what other similarities (and differences) exist between this trio. Click to Read More

Whyte

Wednesday evening, August 5th, Lake Flato held a showing of William Whyte’s “The Social Life of Small Urban Spaces,” a somewhat quirky documentary that observes people and their interactions in urban spaces, primarily in New York City. It attempts to quantify what makes urban space habitable. Although the video and accompanying research are from 1980, the lessons learned are still relevant to design discourse. What better way to end a day of work than grabbing a bowl of popcorn, a good beer, and catching a great flick. We’re currently scheduling our next L|F Theater showing. Stay tuned… Click to Read More

Porch House

A few weeks ago, in anticipation of Rand Pinson’s departure, we held a little in-house Porch House showcase. As someone who works in the land of 50,000+ sq ft commercial projects, it was a great opportunity for me to get a little insight into projects that are generally closer in scale to 5,000 sq ft. I learned a little history and a lot about the evolution of an idea. Porch House was started in the height of the recession, with the vision to create pre-fabricated residential homes, that could be assembled in the factory, and delivered to the site fully built. Miller Ranch, one of the first realized Porch Houses, was trucked to the site fully formed.
