Detective Note

Vol.000 – Coffee Break with Mende and Me


Over a 13 year period I have written 76 Mende Notes. I tried, very diligently, to write one every month, but some things just don`t go as planned. So, now I donate this supposed “Note” writing time to a monthly hour and a half lunchtime chat with a LPA staff member. This new column, “Coffee Break with Mende and Me”, is an opportunity to talk frankly with my staff about lighting, design, architecture, or other worldly problems. Whatever they are interested in is the topic of the interview. So enjoy these monthly chats as I will too, over a cup of coffee with my staff.
