Michael Arad, architect
Michael was at Dartmouth at the same time I was and we were acquaintances through some mutual friends. He also worked at KPF, (Kohn, Pedersen, Fox) where another friend of mine was working, when I ran into him on the streets of NYC maybe a year ago.
I am happy to hear his work was recognized for the memorial. Congratulations Mike!
