“Far from being the rock or island in the Simon and Garfunkel song, it turns out that the best metaphor to describe the human body is 'sponge.”
Rick Smith, Slow Death by Rubber Duck: How the Toxic Chemistry of Everyday Life Affects Our Health

“working with Permasteelisa was very collaborative. They were very open to the process and grasped using this technology very quickly. The reason being, they were already computer literate. Permasteelisa installed CATIA in their office after this, and they began using it on all their subsequent projects.”
Rick Smith, Fabricating the Frank Gehry Legacy: The Story of the Evolution of Digital Practice in Frank Gehry's office

“Nothings ever easy!!!!”
Rick Smith
