I met Tucker Viemeister, designer extraordinaire, teacher and mentor, at his studio for lunch. The food was amazing as were the views from the penthouse office which Tucker shares with HMA2 Architects. It also was the first warm day of a very cold winter. Our conversation was jumpstarted by Karen Davidov, of HMA2—"Having a professional affiliation is good both ways! It gives you access to all programming, mentors, events, and it puts you on a pathway you don't get when you're in college."
