27 Jan COMMITTEE CHAIR PROFILE: SYCAMORE CREEK
Jonathan Wood, Owner/Architect, Wood Architects
Of your recent projects, which is your favorite and why?
After two years of planning and design, we are finally under construction for an addition and renovation to my personal residence. I love being on site every day and watching our vision come to life.
What inspires you?
I am inspired by the design and building process. Most good things don’t come easily, and the design and building process is no exception. I am inspired by the journey from the first sketch idea to the day the client moves into their new space. The design and building process is never a straight line, there are always sacrifices, but I always find an inspirational space or element from every project.
What does your committee do?
The Sycamore Creek committee organizes an annual sporting clay fundraising and networking event held in the fall. The committee also recruits participants and local sponsors to take part in the event. We’re able to do a lot by phone and email so we only have a few in-person meetings.
How can AIA Cincinnati members get involved with Sycamore Creek?
We are always looking for new committee members. We’re able to do a lot by phone and email so we only have a few in-person meetings. We would like energetic architects with deep network connections to the local design and construction fields.
Members can also recruit a team to participate. Architects, vendors, contractors, all are welcome! Contact me if you have questions or are interested.
