"I did the best I could with what I had." -Thurgood Marshall
Senior Project Architect
Having come from an architectural beginning in 1950, into the 21st century, has afforded me many wonderful opportunities to expand the knowledge of my craft. Projects of all sizes are equally important, but there are special projects that are meaningful in my journey. They would include the relocation of the Tulsa International Airport Terminal from Apache and Sheridon to its present location, the Civic Center's Convention Center, City Hall, and Municipal buildings, the 42nd story One Main Place Tower, and OSU's Gallagher-Iba Arena and Boone Pickens Stadium. Lifelong friendships were formed with both clients and tradesmen - and unfortunately too many of those longtime friends are no longer with us.
Todays goal for me is to pass on the knowledge gained through my years of project management and construction administration to the young artisans now carrying the baton.
Getting to know Ivan:
My pleasures outside of the architectural world are spending time at our family cabin at Grand Lake, and following the adventures of our sons, daughters, and grandchildren.
