I visited Chicago recently for my University of Illinois class reunion and came away with many observations and insights. As an architect by profession, good architecture plays a key role in what shapes my vision of life in terms of city skylines. Chicago may be the windy city, but its buildings play to an architect’s heartstrings. When a city is as well-designed as this, with one building complementing another and each one thoughtfully sited, one almost doesn’t notice the exquisite symmetry.
There aren’t enough superlatives in the dictionary to describe Skye Parker. His ebullient spirit is captivating and contagious. A true creative. A brilliant mind. A genius. Ask anyone.
Most recently, Skye has been a member of my staff. His future holds basically whatever he envisions. Simply a remarkable young man.
