Join us for a terrific art opening Friday at the Wyly Community Art Center. Our very own Will Young will be a featured artist in the collection ‘4 Architects’. The exhibit, which runs through December 6th features work from Will Young, Glenn Rappaport, Harry Teague and Larry Yaw.
Will’s work, which will be on display, represents his love of low tech whimsical gadgets and an ongoing study of a simple gable roof. Working in cast bronze, cast glass, steel, wood, concrete and ceramics, Will is passionate about materials and tries to bring out the inherent beauty found in each. He says “It is true; I have never met a material I did not like.” We look forward to seeing his work on display, and we are honored that he is a part of our team!

Charles Cunniffe Architects has been selected as one of OUTSIDE’s Best Places to Work 2014. Each year, OUTSIDE recognizes the top 100 companies in the United States that help their employees strike the ideal balance between work and play. These companies encourage employees to lead an active lifestyle, are eco-conscious, and prioritize giving back to the community. The entire list of winners appears online here.
To find the best places to work in the United States, OUTSIDE conducted a rigorous eight-month vetting process in partnership with the Best Companies Group to assess the policies, practices, and demographics of hundreds of companies, and went straight to the employees to hear about factors like corporate culture, role satisfaction, work environment and overall employee engagement. The Best Places to Work list represents the cream of the crop: companies who cultivate a comfortable and collaborative workplace, enable their employees to enjoy the great outdoors and take pride in their roles in the community and the environment.
“If you’re considering a career change or searching for your dream job, OUTSIDE’s Best Places to Work list is the first place to look,” said OUTSIDE Executive Editor Michael Roberts. “These companies set the standard for workplaces that really value their employees and offer an experience that’s fulfilling inside and outside the office.”
“We are thrilled to have made OUTSIDE’S Best Places to Work list. With such beautiful surroundings, we strive to ensure that our team is able to take advantage of life outside of work. We pull a great deal of inspiration from the outdoors, and that shows in the breadth of our work. Thank you to our dedicated team of hard working architects, designers and business professionals.”
