There are a lot of people I’d like to thank for making this trip possible.
First and foremost AIA Chicago and the Martin Roche scholarship jury who bestowed upon me this gracious honor.
Secondly, the individuals and organizations that have assisted me during the unparalleled economic times of 2009. Without you all I don’t know how I would have been able to accomplish what I have in Medellín.
Third, the amazing Architects who’ve taken the time to teach me over the course of the past decade. Thank you for your constant patience and continued support.
Luis Felipe Barahona
Oscar De Armas
Juan Carlos Martin
Carol Ross Barney
R. Stephen Sennott
Matthew D. Miller
Thomas J. McLeish
Finally, to the colleges and friends I’ve made over the course of the past decade of design.
I don’t know how to begin to thank you for being a part of my life. For through your friendship, your kindness and constant support, you have helped to propel me to greatness; Without seeing your amazing talents, witnessing your courageous work ethic and watching you succeed in achieving the goals of your own, I would have never been able to strive towards the goals that I’ve set and achieve all that I have.
