I started following Rob when I found him on Twitter, tweeting about A4E, Architects for Education.
Over the next few weeks/months, Rob followed the antics of COYO, and then started his own fascinating blog about the life of an architect which I often read, and so do many of the kids we work with. It's great to get inside an architects head, contrary to popular belief!, and I hope that other construction professionals will follow suit.
After meeting Rob in London at the Stickyworld seminar down in London (BIG respect to Michael Kohn and Stickyworld - if you don't use Stickyworld already, then you should), then travelling down a couple of months later to visit him and his team at JLA, I realise there's an awful lot of synergy. Rob is doing some great stuff himself with school design, and I really hope that he likes what we're doing over the next few months enough to get involved.
I still refer our students and young people to one of Rob's early blogs, and am really pleased that he wrote it following a question I asked on Twitter regarding the relavence of 'careers advice' in secondary schools. It's inspirational stuff..... http://anders1156.wordpress.com/2010/04/16/careers-guidance-for-asp...
Rob is definitely 'end user' focussed....the fact he appreciates working with women has absolutely NOTHING to do with it :)
