Introducing...George Murphy

As a master of architecture from Catholic University in 2004 and former Spirit of Place participant, George Murphy was a natural choice to lead the crew in 2010. Coming to Finland was extremely appealing, as was the idea of doing something physical demanding while reaching out to a group of students to help them realize something they designed on paper. What did he plan on getting out of the project? "[they] are immeasurable. Working with Travis, Kathleen and Sheila...Interacting with a group of students...seeing a student gain confidence using a tool that would normally be unavailable to them...I think ultimately it's making sure the students have the best experience possible and that at the same time they learn something about the practice of architecture that they can't learn in a lecture in Washington, DC." George currently works as a designer for Bohlin Cywinski Jackson Architects in Philadelphia and is working towards a license.
