Glavé & Holmes 50th Anniversary Legacy Campaign

Glavé & Holmes Architecture is celebrating 50 years! To celebrate the work they have accomplished, the people they have worked with, and all those who have helped them along the way, they sought an anniversary project that would embody the spirit and ideals that have inspired the firm for half a century.  They chose to support the new Branch Museum of Architecture and Design. G&HA asked the question –  How can we introduce non-professionals into this compelling world of design?  Where will future generations of architects and designers find their first spark of inspiration? The Branch’s vision to create a world where we are all passionate advocates for thoughtful design promises to ask and answer questions like these. The chairs of the campaign are H. Randolph Holmes, Jr., AIA and Lori Snyder Garrett, AIA with Samuel A. “Pete” Anderson, FAIA as honorary co-chair. Donate>>
