No Disrespect Intended
In the July/August
EBN article about Oberlin College’s Lewis Center (
Vol. 11, No. 7/8), an offhand comment by me was quoted in the text on page 13. While the quote (“What McDonough has to learn is that a piece of glass is not like an insulated wall ...”) is accurate, it is somewhat out of context and could leave the impression that I do not respect the work of William McDonough & Partners in the green design movement. I want to make it clear that I think McDonough is a positive and powerful force in green design, and they are one of only three architectural firms in the U.S. that I recommend to my clients. McDonough’s work demonstrates a clear understanding of green design issues and applications, and they consistently produce designs responsive to clients’ goals and the environment.Ron Perkins, President

We sincerely regret any misunderstanding we may have caused. We believe the article as a whole demonstrates that you and nearly everyone else with whom we spoke has, on the whole, great respect for the work of McDonough + Partners.
