Return of the Master Builder

BY MATTHEW HUME
@ VOL 17 ON SEP 15, 2016

"I tell people I wear two hats—one of the designer and one of the builder, but as I evolve I wish to wear one hat, that of the Master Builder."

In the Return of the Master Builder from PechaKucha Buffalo vol. 17Adjunct Assistant Professor, University at Buffalo School of Architecture and Planning and Owner/Principle of HUME PROJECTS, LLC, Matthew Hume discusses his work creating residential and commercial projects, from the design phase through the construction phase. The traditional Master Builder once integrated both design and construction processes by direct involvement. The profession of architecture and processes of building are shifting back toward a more integrated approach forcing architects to re-evolve into earlier versions of themselves. Hume's recent work in design and construction projects serves as an example of this paradigm shift.

Jon Gildea's Para-cyclist Journey

BY JON GILDEA
@ VOL 18 ON SEP 07, 2017

Jon Gildea began mountain bike racing at the age of 13 and represented Great Britain as a junior rider. He always remained a keen cyclist and in 2012 he was badly injured in a mountain bike accident and broke his left leg badly. This injury meant that he was now eligible for para-cycling events and after being classified as C5 he was accepted onto the British Cycling Paralympic Development programme in 2013. 

After joining the Great Britain Cycling Team in 2013 Jon made rapid progress on the track and road, his career highlight so far becoming a double world champion at the 2017 UCI Para-cycling Track World Championships in Los Angeles.
