Architect, Rainy Hamilton Jr. attended my Hip Hop Inspired Architect lecture at University of Detroit this past week. Mr Hamilton is the first African American architect I ever met and he gave me my start in architecture at Hamilton Anderson Associates following my completion of graduate school at UDM. He also pushed me to evolve my concepts and lecture style by sponsoring various trips to present at NOMA (National Organization of Minority Architects) Conferences around the country.
Hamilton Anderson Associates (HAA) is a multi-disciplinary design firm dedicated to improving the built environment through creative, contemporary design. Our design process combines rigorous analysis, intuitive curiosity and thoughtful execution to create inspiring, contextually responsive solutions. Hamilton Anderson Associates has been a part of a wide range of projects locally and nationally including MGM Grand Detroit Casino and Hotel and City Center in Las Vegas Nevada.
Thanks for your continued support Rainy Hamilton!
Next time, I hope someone tells me to fix my tie.
