Vision

Updated: Mar 11, 2019

There is so much about vision that is transforming ideas, intangible and etherial ideas, into something real, solid, actual. It is what we do when we design a building: it goes from the imagined, to an image, to what is built and experienced by ourselves and our fellow humans.


With both architecture and education, I have considered the goals, assessed the available resources, factored in the constraints, and planned for optimal success. Along the way, I have had to be flexible when resources became scarce or when new resources became available. I have had to adjust when goals shifted or constraints were different from what was expected, and I have seen and contemplated exciting possibilities from new perspectives along the way.


I have found the same to be true about much that I do as a councilor in our beautiful Las Cruces. Plans sometimes have to be living, evolving guides that go from good to excellent to sublime with the right opportunities and vision.



Without vision, even the most focused passion is a battery without a device. Ken Auletta
