In my past professional lives, I have been a salesman, an auto mechanic, a draftsman, a security guard, a cartographer of cemeteries, and a Russian, Serbian, and Croatian Linguist whilst in the Army. Now, I have found my calling in life, hence the architectural student status. I am in my 5th and last year of schooling to get my Bachelors of Architecture.

For those that have asked, I am from Tennessee and always will be, regardless of what state I am currently residing, hence the TN in my name.

Design architect Antoine Predock of New Mexico is known for powerful forms
that reflect the geology of an area, and his buildings in the Southwest make
stunning sculpture inspired by the desert landscape. Here, the shape is
influenced by Split Rock, a towering, craggy cliff on the North Shore.The eight-story granite shell encloses a large gathering space called
Memorial Hall. The horizontal layers of a six-story, copper-clad office
block home to the University of Minnesota Alumni Association, University of
Minnesota Foundation and Minnesota Medical Foundation reflect the state's
limestone layers.

phwoar. that hits the spot. I see what you mean about the nicely-lit interior making up for the slightly harsh exterior.
