Architects' bookshelf at Historical Concepts



We toured Historical Concepts' Glenwood Park studio yesterday. (That would be "Historical Concepts Architects, Planners and Place-Makers.")

Honestly, I think they do these tours just for me.

David VanGroningen (blue shirt) and Clay Rokicki (@clayrokicki gesturing with his left arm) spent an hour or so showing us around while the rest of the architects kept right on working.

There are a couple of oldies in Paul's left stack and he pulled them down to show me.
