A few weeks ago, on March 31, I had the pleasure of speaking with Diane Jacobs, one of the principals behind a small firm in Downtown Phoenix called Holly Street Studio Architects that focuses on public work.

Diane’s firm has done some remarkable public projects such as McCormick Ranch Railroad Park, Maryvale Poolhouse and the Core Collection at the Heard Museum.  Just recently, the firm was awarded ASU’s new Student Engagement Center tenant improvement project at the historic Post Office in Downtown.

Below is part I of my video interview with Diane.

Diane on the importance of officing out of Downtown Phoenix:

Diane on how architects can save the world:

Diane on being a woman and a leader in the architecture:



Look for Part II of my interview with Diane tomorrow!


Diane will speaking at the Taliesen West Spring Lecture Series this week on Thursday at 7pm. For more information, click here. This event is FREE.
