Recently, we had a glorious soup day in the office! It was a great way to warm up on a dismal, gray monday afternoon. We had so much fun and enjoyed the array of flavors that we thought we would share a few of the recipes with everyone!

I wasn’t a military brat but I did grow up in a military family. My dad served before I was born – it was part of him and therefore a part of me. I had three grandparents serve during WWII. Yes, three. Both of my grandfathers were in the Army and my grandmother served as [...]
Spotlight on Resident Guru, Bryant Cherry!
Shawn had the pleasure of speaking at the North Dakota USGBC Chapter’s Annual Green Focus Meeting in Fargo.

City officials and neighborhood leaders celebrated the ground breaking for Cincinnati’s new $16 million Police District 3 Headquarters on Monday.

Spotlight on Principal and Senior Architect, Roger Curran
CINCINNATI – Plans to replace the timeworn Cincinnati police District 3 station moved forward Monday with a groundbreaking ceremony in the city’s largest neighborhood of Westwood. The gears of justice will turn a little more safely now that Cincinnati is building a $15 million upgrade to its western district police station, in what is notoriously recognized as one of the most violent areas of town as of late. The new 39,000 square-foot facility, scheduled to open in July 2015, will replace the current facility located on Warsaw Avenue in East Price Hill.

Article: Cincinnati Business Courier – Forty Under 40, Second Act winners celebrate at luncheon: SLIDESHOW
Forty Under 40 recognizes Greater Cincinnati’s next generation of young leaders and innovators — people who have already made a mark professionally and in the community, while Second Act recognizes local professionals who have started on new paths after leaving their first careers.
emersion DESIGN is proud to say we’ve been named a Finalist in the Cincinnati Business Courier’s 2013 Best Places to Work competition!

A 1934 building once used for structural and mechanical testing was transformed last year into a state-of-the-art facility where the physics of warfighters’ power and thermal systems are being explored. Now the building itself has garnered a seldom-achieved Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certified status. A ceremony marking the achievement was held Aug. 8 in Bldg. 23, Area B, on Fifth Street, site of the Advanced Power and Thermal Research Laboratory, part of the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.
by Nikki Kelley A common prompt in those “get-to-know-you” icebreaker sessions is: Tell us something others don’t know about you. I can’t ever think on my feet. Here’s something most people don’t know about me. I wanted to be a police officer when I was a teenager. I joined up with the Boy Scouts [...]
Krista attended the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra’s LumenoCity, a free concert that incorporated spectacular visual elements never before paired with a live orchestra, to welcome the new Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra Music Director Louis Langrée. Read about the inspiring event as seen through an architect’s eyes.
The Cincinnati Art Museum is celebrating the 10th anniversary of their Cincinnati Wing which a number of emersion DESIGN employees are proud to have been a part of. In this week’s inspirational entry, Jim shares his experiences with the Museum throughout the past decade.
Melissa explains how her psychology background has helped her gain insight into her recent experiences with assisted living projects and her discovery of the Eden Alternative – a small not-for-profit organization based on the belief that aging should be a continued stage of development and growth, rather than a period of decline.
Tucked into Shaker farmland and surrounded by forests, the University of Cincinnati’s recently-opened Court Archaeological Research Facility (CARF) at the Cincinnati Center for Field Studies provides students hands-on field experience steps away from prehistoric artifacts. In doing so, the building also uses the latest technology to minimize its impact on the environment. This technology now includes an array of 20 solar panels, making it the first UC buildings that can rely entirely on renewable energy to operate and, at times, provide electricity for other residences within the community.
Recently, we (emersion DESIGN) participated in a “Social Madness Competition” put on by The Business Journals. The competition is a one-of-a-kind contest that measures a company’s social media engagement, pitting companies head-to-head in three groups based on company size and it got Amanda thinking.
Chad takes a closer look at drywall on job sites and is reminded of some of his favorite painters.
For the monthly in-house DESIGN! lunch for June, emersionites volunteered to share inspiration examples. Participants were asked to bring an inspirational item, example, or story to share in about 3 minutes. It could be simple or profound, did not have to be about design, and the employee did not have to be a designer to participate.
