Q & A with Jeff Harkey, RA

What is the last book you read?

Just re-read ‘The Devil in the White City”. It’s about Daniel Burnham, the Architect who designed the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago. My wife recommended it to me, since his career was a forerunner of mine as an Event Architect.

If there were 25 hours in a day, what would you spend the extra hour doing?

Riding my bike on Raleigh’s Greenways!

What do you do to relax?

Take an afternoon Safety Nap with my dog. It’s for safety.

What is your favorite quote?

“The spirit, the will to win and the will to excel – these are the things that endure and these are the qualities that are so much more important than any of the events that occasion them.” – Vince Lombardi
