Last month, Mark Reddington, FAIA, discussed his work as a partner at LMN. Mark spoke in detail about Vancouver Convention Centre West – which served as the media center for the 2010 Winter Olympics – LMN’s history on the UW campus, building PACCAR Hall, home to the Foster School of Business, as well as the Paul G.

Mark stressed the collaborative aspects of LMN’s work: “Making places and making buildings in not simply an individual effort, but something we all do together…”
Though Ambiens is technically a piece of CFD software, it allows for rapid modeling (when you get used to its quirks) and very quick simulations (often less than 2 minutes).
