journalist seeking architect/client stories
Hello. I am a freelance writer looking for a story for a large circulation US magazine. The publication is devoting an issue to the passion that owners feel for their homes.

I am trying to find a story about a home owner in Europe who is very passionate about the vision for their house and as a result may have had a falling out with one or more architects or had on-going conflicts with their neighbors over the design/construction of the house or overcome incredible obstacles to stick with a design or really any other issue that can arise out of the single-minded passion for a home's design.

If you have a story that you think might work (and you think the client would be happy to speak with me as well), please send me an email at ajrendon@earthlink.net

Thank you.
Jim Rendon

it's over the era of old better big better. we have to get out from our traditionalist thinking (with all the respect to tradition)...
a passionate designer shouldn't be old age-wise or big in hight to be able in designing a mindful enjoying home of course with client! i know an Italian Architect Lui Galati who is very much artist.

Hi Jim,
