Design matters: Building green
Lafayette 108

Rolf Keilman is an architect at Truex & Cullins and former managing partner of the Burlington-based firm. The following is a statement from Rolf on his approach to architecture: My mother and father were both craft people. As a weaver and silversmith, they spent their lives crafting items of beauty and utility. My interest in art and architecture came through sculpture and this has spurred a sustained involvement in the craft of building design. Architecture is a child-like activity…creative, spontaneous but requiring great care and method.
