Thoughts on the Contributions of Architect Gary Gene Olp
Gary Olp was one of the hand picked students admitted to the University of Cincinatti known for Michael Graves and other prestigious architects. He received a chapter AIA award for his first professional project, a new clubhouse for a century old revered country club in Ohio. Gary has been designing residential projects since the mid 1980s expressing his contemporary architecture in organic shapes, smooth surfaces, and accentuated by the warm tones and textures of the steel struts, beams, and elements allowed to oxidize. His homes are sited to capture the southeasterly breezes and soft east and north light and to shield harsh west sun.
A million thanks for the incredible day you planned for us on Saturday! What a treat! The homes are all incredible! Having you as our guide was extraordinary! And to have Gary Olp meet us at the Washburn residence was really the icing on the cake. Everyone really enjoyed listening to both of you. And yes, lunch included a very lively discussion of which home was each person’s favorite.
Than you again and again for an amazing day!
