the first office building I worked in was the former norwest, now wells fargo, at the very top. on breaks I would look out at the city view in 1993. even though I’m not a resident of downtown anymore, I am very close, I walk a few blocks more for OPEN DOORS, see the BRONZE FONZE and attend BASTILLE DAYS instead of just crossing the street.
from 1995 to 2007 I worked downtown in positions during the design of the SANTIAGO CALATRAVA ART MUSEUM, and watched it being built from a window in the NML building as a temp. It was while working for the architects that I developed an interest in the rich history of the city and enjoy pointing out points of interest to visitors, as well as give correct directions. even though I still haven’t gone on a brewery tour (which I would do after a viewing of my favorite movie “All ABOUT EVE” ) it’s on my list after recently crossing off going to the top of the CLOCKTOWER, as in the photo.
