    Blast From the Past

    Posted by on 8/31/15 at 08:01am

    A few weeks back we had another edition of our office show-and-tell, 3x6x9. This time we asked some vetern LF’ers to present their favorite Lake Flato projects from the early years. We heard a lot of great stories about clients, contractors and office antics. We learned about some projects that were not only formative for the trajectory of the firm but also individual colleagues (for example, Laura did a study of the Carraro house in grad school, which she explained transformed how she conceived of the single family home).

    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

    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
