I had the privilege of shadowing Mr. Bob Luke of LPK Architects in Meridian, MS this past week. I was able to sit in on a staff meeting to hear about the statuses of projects, look through many drawings for the Mississippi Arts and Entertainment Experience (the MAX) and other buildings, and watch a draftsman at work. Mr. Luke, who worked on the MAX, gave me a private tour of the MAX on a closed day, and I learned about the process of designing and creating the building, as well as the history and thought processes behind the exhibits. Additionally, Mr. Luke and I walked around downtown Meridian, which now looks excellent, thanks to the efforts of LPK Architects and others who worked to make the improvements possible.
