Brattleboro Music Center Groundbreaking

The groundbreaking ceremony for the Brattleboro Music Center was held on September 15th under sunny skies, and we are happy to share a video of the ceremony with you. Your eyes do not deceive you- Johann Sebastian Bach DOES make an appearance, as well as our own Austin Smith around the 11:00 mark. Congratulations to the BMC, we will continue to keep you up to date on the construction progress.

Scott Simons, FAIA

ScottSimonsHeadshotWe are pleased to announce that Scott has been elected to The College of Fellows of The American Institute of Architects. Scott is the third Fellow in Maine, and only the seventh architect in the state’s history to receive this great honor. The AIA Fellowship program was developed to elevate those architects who have made a significant contribution to architecture and society and who have achieved a standard of excellence in the profession. Election to Fellowship not only recognizes the achievements of the architect as an individual, but also honors before the public and the profession a model architect who has made a significant contribution to architecture and society on a national level. Congratulations, Scott! Class of 2016 Fellows

The Changing Nature of Libraries

Scott and Austin did a presentation at the SMPS New New year social sorry Year Kick-off on the renovations at the Portland Public Library and the changing nature of libraries.

Five years after the completion of PPL renovations, it is hard to remember the old library. Scott and Austin walked the group through the transformation of the old building into a vibrant resource that allows interaction with Monument Square and the greater community. 

Scott's Maine Live Presentation

Weren't able to see Scott's Maine Live Presentation in September? Check it out now! Scott Simons has been a patient observer of the changes in Portland over the past 25 years. Simons is an architect who works with his studio team to design buildings that he hopes are beginning to change the landscape of design in the city, such as the Portland Public Library and the Casco Bay Ferry Terminal. He believes Portland can become one of the world’s great cities for design. Recent history confirms the city is ready for well-designed, modern buildings, so it’s time to push the edge and become players on the world stage of design.
