Victoria Meyers architect (hMa) was quoted in an article by Norman Weinstein entitled, “WORDS THAT BUILD: Translate Images Into Touching Performances”. The following is an excerpt from the article, which is part of a series by Norman Weinstein focusing on the foundations of architecture: oral and written communication:

The architect and educator Victoria Meyers addresses this disconnect incisively: “Space is an abstract art and it is difficult to communicate to a client ahead of time what they are buying into. We will build very specific physical models and computer models, we’ll do renderings, we’ll provide material samples, and I know exactly what the space consists of before it goes into construction. Still, it’s always a shock for the client.”
