Headgear for the next five years

princeton hard hat

Went to the Princeton open house for admitted students on Monday. There's an addition being built onto the school and so they gave out hard hats. I was delighted and could barely contain myself — I stopped talking to Stan Allen (the Dean, who owns a very nice bull terrier, as I would later learn) and Jesse Reiser (an architect who makes cool buildings) and took this self portrait to post on Flickr.

Princeton is great. We had an exhausting but wonderful visit. I'm thrilled about the possibilities for people to work with, faculty and students alike. I've also realized, yet again, that I may have the opportunity to build my own design practice that branch off what I did teaching at Ivrea. It's going to be an intense but headily terrific 5-6 years…
