This I Believe: Architecture
By Frederic Reamer
Providence, RI – How often do you walk the streets of Rhode Island's cities and towns and notice - really notice - the architecture that surrounds you? What do Rhode Island's buildings mean to you - their height, their texture, their aesthetics? How do they shape your life? Ross Cann reflects on the profound meaning that Rhode Island's buildings have in his life.
Cann is a former board member of the RI chapter of the American Institute of Architects. He holds architecture degrees from Yale, Cambridge and Columbia and is an historian, educator and practicing architect living and working in Newport.
