“Completing construction [at Samohi’s Discovery building] is just the beginning; the process of change continues. It’s about preparing this place for its next 100 years.” -- James Mary O'Connor FAIA, principal at Moore Ruble Yudell, on the Samohi Discovery project, as featured in this month’s issue of Architectural Record.
