Vincent C. Stanchina is a licensed architect who received a Master of Architecture degree from the University of Michigan in 1989. He has worked on a vast array of sophisticated projects for more than twenty years.
A childhood in northern Michigan provided for opportunities to develop ideas regarding quality living environments where space is modulated by forests and lakes rather than by suburbs and highways. “Vince is from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and everything about him reflects this. He continuously shows respect and care for the environment in his work. I believe he has the same regard for people.” (Robert Metcalf, Dean of the University of Michigan College of Architecture and Urban Planning)
Architecture is primarily concerned with art in the built environment. The technical, financial and managerial are very important but the architecture is damaged when art is made subservient. The beauty of architecture is in the way it reveals truth to humanity. A process of honest and thorough discussion between architect and client is necessary to find the truth of a project. A superficial or expedient approach to design is unlikely to result in a beautiful solution.
“This world in which we live needs beauty in order not to sink into despair. Beauty, like truth, brings joy to the human heart and is that precious fruit which resists the erosion of time, which unites generations and enables them to be one in admiration.”
(John Paul II, Letter to Artists)
Architecture, like truth, benefits humanity and so is a serious responsibility. An architect seeks opportunities to make contributions to those dedicated to excellence and where there is continued growth as an architect.
