No one needs to be told that business in the architecture, construction and real estate world these days is tight. There aren’t many chances to compete for business. The few chances that you do get, you want to win.
That’s why I was so excited to get the chance to interview Phil Freelon, whose firm The Freelon Group has won several big presentations lately. Earlier this year, Phil’s firm teamed with HOK here in Atlanta to win the competition to design the Atlanta Center for Civil and Human Rights.
Just a month later, Phil’s firm won another trophy commission, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture.
Earlier this week I interviewed Phil about what it takes for architects to win these highly competitive opportunities.
