Architect's Response to Proposed EPA Budget


Architect David Lake of Lake|Flato Architects in San Antonio, TX has shared his discussion, via letter, with U.S. Representative Lamar Smith (R-TX) regarding the recent proposed budget cuts to the EPA. This is as coherent and poignant a response as I've seen, and it's particularly refreshing to see it come from not only within my profession, but from a respected name in both design and sustainable practice. It's as crucial as ever that we make it abundantly clear that we (not only architects, but all human beings, period) must stand up to safeguard the future of the only place we have to call home.
