    Hello From Seattle, Washington USA

    Just found this site and wanted to register and support the architectural/planning community. I work in the field of architecture and architectural visualization. Look forward to reading the post and seeing others design solutions.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Welcome from Washington DC.

    The local gov I work for is just starting to do some architectural visualization of large proposed developments. Seems most intresting indeed.

    Again welcome and we look forward to your input.

    Welcome from someone who once lived in Richland, WA. I now live a few hundred miles South of you, in California. Seattle is a lovely town.

    Welcome from flyover country. We could use some visualization around here.
    SOME say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice.
    From what Iíve tasted of desire
    I hold with those who favor fire.
    But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate
    To know that for destruction ice
    Is also great
    And would suffice.

    Wow, what a warm welcome!

    Wow, what a warm welcome! Never experienced an online welcoming commity like this one, whished my site was as welcoming and accomodating, says something for the community you have here.

    Well it looks like a lot of members from the far reaches of the US. I must say, some unusual avatars here, hope I am not insulting anyone with that comment! LOL

    Well I will go take a gander at the recent post and see what catagories are of most interest around here. Thanks again for such a warm welcome, Take care!

    Spokanite,
    I did my fifth year thesis in Spokane at the WSU alternative campus. Lived there for a little over a year in the Browns Addition District. After graduation I helped a professor out writing a grant study on South Hill and Manito Park (excuse the spelling, been a while), suggesting guidlines for future development in order to preserve the character of the neighborhoods.

    I really enjoyed the area, especially the historic architecture. My brother lives there, but I rarely make the long drive.

    Michele Zone,
    I have the fondest memories of attending the Tri-Cities Hydro-plane races in my teens. Rowdy party with a lot of wild times. Your avatar reminds me of the festivities!

    RichmondJake,
    Idaho? I have spent some time at Cour d'lene (Sp?), but have never really toured the state. Oh yeah! there was Moscow, Idaho and 'Ratz' nightclub and various other drinking establishments, kind of predetermined when you are at a small college town 9 miles across the border!

    Thanks again everyone!

    P.S. I really don't have the drinking problem that this post may seem to indicate!

    I was extremely fond of the Tri-cities and was trying, for a time, to get back there. I applied for an internship at the national science lab up there. I was even called for an interview -- for their satelite lab in Sequim (sp?)! (on the coast) I remember doing 4th of July on the river and some other events. But I never attended the hydroplane races. My two sons were still quite young when we lived up there and I have health problems that were not properly diagnosed until 3-ish years ago. That combo significantly curtailed my activities for a long time. (OT: I was there when they dug up Kennewick Man.)

    RE my avatar: I have been much ribbed in this forum for comments I made (while heavily medicated) about my ...um...Rubenesque and somewhat busty figure. And I have threatened repeatedly to post pictures of me as a flat-chested, rail-thin teen. So, as a 'down payment' on that threat, that is a photo of me at age 17, on vacation in Biloxi, Mississippi. (EDIT: I actually posted that as a new avatar in the middle of the night, last night, some time AFTER posting my original "welcome" comments in this thread. So it is funny that you should comment on my brand new avatar!)

    I hope you enjoy your time here. It is a wonderful forum, overall -- even if people occasionally get a little rowdy. (I am sometimes one of the guilty parties. :-} )


    PS: the other thing I get ribbed about (endlessly so) is my tendency to be loooongwinded. :-0

    Welcome, from a former resident of Whidbey Island. I miss Beth's Cafe on Aurora Blvd. They make a mean breakfast!

    MicheleZone,
    First off, didn't mean to rib you about the avatar, it just looked like proper attire for the boat races I was talking about
    Sequim is the 'Banana Belt' of Washington, lots of sunny days while surrounded by rain forrest, very nice place, not that far from Seattle.
    Rowdy can be fun as well as good hearted ribbing. I try to take what anyone says while posting, in the nicest way possible and hope others take my comments that way also.

    Nerudite,
    Haven't had the pleasure of visting Beth's Cafe, If I ever happen to notice this fine eating establishment, I will try to stop by and check it out!

    Thanks again everyone for such a warm welcome, have a great weekend!

    nah, I didn't mean to suggest that you were ribbing me or anything. I am just chatty sometimes. That's all.
