I am an architecture professor at UPenn in Philadelphia. You can search for me easily to see what I do--basically write books about cities and architecture. I appreciate all things urban, and I like to travel to many places in the US, but return very often to NYC, which I regard as a home away from home. I also travel every summer to Paris where I lead a summer program for graduate students. From there I usually take trips around Europe for a week or two. I like clean, spare places with plenty of light. Size does not matter as much as the quality of the space. I always take care of places that I stay in, as I appreciate material qualities and cherish the ambiance of wonderful places. I like to live gracefully and cleanly, and have great respect for generous people (like you) who open their spaces to others.
