No one needs to be told that business in the architecture, construction and real estate world these days is tight. Â 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. Â 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.
