WREN’SWESTERNOUTPUTFacilitiesPart 1By Annette Wren,FCSI, CDTWARNING: If you do not like the truth, stop reading.The issues set forth in this series for you are from the trenchesand another WAKE UP call. The issues are based on myexperiences with the good, bad and the ugly in medical facilitiesand actual care. This is NOT about health care proposals andlegislation. Did you read my series on health care in 2008? Didyou WAKE UP and seek out the insurance that meets yourneeds? Have you done your homework about the facilitieswhere you and your loved ones will receive health care? No?WAKE UP! When an emergency or health crisis occurs,you or your loved one will end up in the facility that theambulance drives you to unless other arrangements are made.You may end up in the ambulance driver's choice and need to bemoved. In the middle of a crisis is not the time to start figuringout where you will be cared for. Based on my experiences withloved ones, you need a clear mind to reason out the choices ofmedical care when you are in the middle of a health crisis.When was the last time you took a tour of your communitymedical facility? Do you know the accepted facility choices onyour insurance plan? What about any long term care facilities?Evaluating and selecting facilities for health care should bepart of your life planning experience. It is sad that most ads forlife planning are only about insurance and funerals. The choicesof facilities and physicians are of the utmost importance! I havenews for those of you who think you are set because you “haveinsurance”. Think - you may have car repair insurance; however,if there are not any appropriate repair shops in sight, where areyou going to repair your car? If you believe that your insurancepolicy alone insures you of proper care, you are in for bigtrouble!One of the most important health planning tasks you can dofor your family is to investigate your actual community choicesof hospitals and care facilities. Research the community facilitieswhere you and your loved ones will receive health care inadvance. Take some time and take a look at the choices that areavailable to you in the community or in the terms of yourinsurance plan. BEWARE: The lists provided by your insurancecarrier are not always accurate. You should question yourinsurance carrier about the choices in your area. AND, if youcannot tour or enter a facility without significant prior notice,something is wrong. I do not care what the excuse is aboutsecurity. They are hiding something. Visit at different hours,look around, and use your six senses. Have the choice of healthcare facilities in a family plan you create and make sureEVERYONE knows locations!Between June 4 and August 4, 2009, I experienced fourhospitals and one long term care facility. It was three good, one4 OCCCSI Newsletter,September/October 2009(continued on page 14)

WOLFE’SHOWLtough timesBy Sheldon Wolfe, RA, FCSI,CCS, CCCAsubmerge: to be engulfed in or with somethingI don't understand the sudden interest in people enteringthe workforce. We've had them ever since Joe Caveman kickedhis kids out of the cave and told them they had to work for aliving, and we will have them until we enter the world of Matrix.When I graduated from college - after walking ten miles eachday, into the wind, uphill, both ways - I decided where I wantedto work, paid them a visit, filled out an application, and had aninterview. The time being the mid-'70s, I then went to the nextoffice on my list, and so on until, three months later, I found ajob - and it wasn't with an architectural firm.We're in a similar situation now; lots of empty desks andmore applicants than jobs. Is it realistic to expect employers togo out of their way to beg someone to work? Unless you havea very special skill or talent, I'm not sure why they would evenin good times, but this year, and for some time to come, it's nota seller's market.From the employer's perspective, people just out of school- especially architects - aren't all that valuable. They may havebook learnin', but few have practical knowledge or usefulexperience. Many years ago, after hiring a couple of people fromthe local architecture mill, I turned to the Dunwoody Institute,a vo-tech whose graduates were productive within a couple ofdays. I know, there's a difference between a “big D” Designerand those who “only” produce drawings. But if you are moreconcerned about staying in business than getting on the cover ofa magazine, you don't need a lot of Designers. The majority ofdesign firms and contractors are successful because theyconcentrate on producing good buildings that work, rather thantrying to achieve star status.emerging professionalsWhat are emerging professionals, and why do we suddenlyhave them? From what I can tell, they are nothing more or lessthan recent graduates or other people new to a profession. Dowe really need a committee to study this to death and come upwith a five-page definition? Isn't this just a new name forsomething we've always had? I think kids don't go outside to playenough; turns out they have NDD - nature deficit disorder. Likeall good architects, the stacks of paper on my desk are my filingsystem, and I have one deadline after another. Guess what after all these years, I just learned that I have SWS - stackingwork syndrome. Tired of bad websites? You probably sufferfrom MRS - mouse rage syndrome. Looking for a job? You're anemerging professional!Perhaps all we're seeing is manifestation of the naturaltendency to seek out others in similar situations, which now isaided greatly by the many means of communicating and formingvirtual groups. In the good old days, just like today, we hung out(continued on page 14)OCCCSI Newsletter,September/October 2009 5

BUCHNOTESMonumentsBy Edmond Buch, CSI, AIAStop and think for a minute about the last time you stoppedand took note of a public monument, statue, or memorial. (Cananyone even name a monument in Los Angeles?) Unless you'vebeen to Washington, DC lately, I'm guessing it's been a whilesince you've even thought about them. Judith Dupre's newbook, “MONUMENTS, America's History in Art and Memory”,aims to help us see monuments in a new light, to understandhow they came to be in the first place, to understand theirpurposes and importance, and to see how their designs haveevolved through history.Where does one start in the design of a monument?There's no space program to look to for a design direction,there isn't a user group whose functional needs have to beaddressed, and sometimes even the budget is undefined at thestart. On the other hand the site is usually a given and theperson or event being commemorated is known. But, unless it'sa straight forward representational “statue”, it's the designer'sdifficult task to determine the appropriate symbolism and thencreate the physical expression necessary for the monument tobe successful. This complexity may explain why some recentmonuments have endured so much controversy.JULY MEETINGPhotos by Jerry FosterDupre takes us through the evolution of monuments, fromthe ancient pyramids and obelisks to the more familiar bronzestatues of the late 19th Century, to the Lincoln Monument andthe Jefferson Memorial of the 20th Century, to the more recentVietnam Veterans Memorial, and the Oklahoma City NationalMemorial. Most of our famous American monuments andmemorials are included. Along the way other national historicsites are presented even though these aren't strictly“monuments” in the conventional sense. In each instance shedescribes how the monument originated, the importantfeatures of the monument and how the monument has beenused over its lifetime. Monuments have little in common withone another except they attempt to incorporate a timelessdesign motif and are made of permanent materials. Recentmonuments have struggled with tension betweenrepresentational and abstract design.In monuments of the late 20th century and today, Dupreedescribes the almost impossible environments of conflictingemotions that have frequently faced designers. I think we can allrecall the controversy surrounding the Vietnam VeteransMemorial. Reviled by many when its design was introduced in1981, it is now generally accepted as a masterpiece of abstract,but highly symbolic design. There always seem to be too manyopinions, “competing constituencies”, public, private,professional, and personal, to achieve real consensus on a singledesign. In the hands of an untalented designer, the result can bea pastiche of a monument that lacks design clarity.The stories of the monuments are supplemented withpersonal reflections of the author and an interview with one ofAmerica's most important stone cutters. She notes that the6 OCCCSI Newsletter,September/October 2009(continued on page 14)

WESTREGIONCORNERBy David A. Willis, CSIVice President, West Region CSII would first like to thank you all, I think, for the honor ofbeing your West Region VP for the coming year. I am notgenerally good at long speeches or articles but I will give it aconcerted effort anyway.The coming year will present challenges for everyone. Iknow I am not breaking new astounding news when I say theeconomy is in a little bit of a slump. In my travels to visitarchitects all over the northern part of the state I have seenoffices humming with projects and others with many emptycubicles. I have to say however that no matter what thecircumstance, everyone is very upbeat and positive thatbusiness is on the mend and they are all stepping up to do thetasks required to keep the doors open. For example, not longago I arrived at an architect's office for a scheduled lunch andlearn. I was met at the receptionist desk by the CFO of thecompany, answering the phones and greeting visitors. We dowhat we have to do, and it is really uplifting to see howeveryone is stepping up to the plate to keep business moving.I want to take a little time to encourage all chaptermembers, especially those of you on boards or committees, toattend the West Region Conference in Berkley this fall. It ishere that you really find out what CSI is all about. It is here thatyou learn about the inner working of your region. Theeducation programs are always top notch, and we get to be apart of awarding those members that have gone above andbeyond the call of duty.For you industry members, please consider making aneffort to participate in the Conference product shows, not onlythis year but those in the future. This is how the professionalslearn what is new out there. Many good relationships have beenformed with the networking achieved at these pro fairopportunities. There are also many opportunities to providesponsorships beyond the table top level. You won't know untilyou ask, and it doesn't hurt to ask.JULY MEETINGPhotos by Jerry FosterWell, I'll get off my soap box and ask you all to not hesitateto call me with any concerns you may have. I will be learning theropes from Duane in the coming year, and if I don't have theanswer, I'll find out who does. The new governance is kickingin, and it will be interesting to see how it goes in the comingyear.That is about it, so until the next time, keep the rubber sidedown and the shiny side up.OCCCSI Newsletter,September/October 2009 11

WREN’S WESTERN OUTPUT(continued from page 4)bad and one VERY ugly! The “good” were Hoag MemorialHospital in Newport Beach, Little Company of Mary inTorrance, and Whittier Presbyterian IntercommunityHospital. The “bad” was Whittier Hospital Medical Center.And the “VERY ugly” was Evergreen at Fullerton Healthcare(corporate in Seattle, WA). You may not want to face all ofthis; however, it is part of life and staying alive!Why am I writing about this again? My experiences havetaught me that we need to help each other. You need friendswith experiences that can save you time and heart ache inyour time of need. We need to share with each other andempower each other with information. The next article willpresent the fact that everyone receiving medical careSHOULD have an advocate with them.News Flash: Three days before this article went to ourpublisher; one of my cousins manifested the harvest of hermedical facility research. She was proactive and investigatedthe choices of quality hospitals in her area a few years ago.She is in her mid thirties and was healthy. A health crisis cameinto her life and off she went to a quality Emergency Room(ER) on a Friday. Fridays at ER are notorious for a hellaciousexperience in waiting and weird cases. Due to the quality ofthe medical facility, the wait was still long, but not too chaotic(if you dismiss the fire alarm that went off for two hours). 2009 Annette Wren, FCSI, CDTAnnette Wren is a Business Management Consultant assistingprivately held companies.WOLFE’S HOWL(continued from page 5)with each other in college and for a while after graduating, butthe only way it could be done was to physically meet or tostay in touch with newsletters. Today, we can communicateinstantly, form virtual groups, meet in cyberspace, and tweeteach other to death.Shortly after getting my first job as a specifier, my bosstook care of all the needs I had as an emerging professional he suggested I join CSI. He didn't really say I had to, though inthose days most of us took suggestions from our employers alittle more seriously than seems common today. He didn't begme, either; he assumed I should have enough responsibilityfor my own career to look into it and take advantage of whatCSI offered. But he cared enough to point me in the rightdirection.One interesting aspect of being a professional is that“emergence” has no end. Dedicated professionals will findthat after emerging comes submerging - becoming immersedin their profession. You don't know half what you need toknow when you graduate, and the longer you work the moreyou will realize how little you know, until you finally acceptthat you will never know all that you should. Also, being aprofessional isn't limited to those jobs that require a license.Any person who is committed to learning a job and doing itas well as possible is a professional, whether that job isarchitect, engineer, specifier, mason, glazier, or roofer.14 OCCCSI Newsletter,September/October 2009So what is it we expect CSI to do for emergingprofessionals? Most CSI members I know already are willingto help anyone who has a problem, and many do so regularly.Although someone may come up with a great scheme forhelping people new to a construction profession, in the end itwill depend on those individual members who makethemselves available to help. And that is as it should be; eachof us is responsible for “paying forward” the help we hadwhen we entered and as we matured in our professions.As Teddy Roosevelt said, “Every man owes part of histime and money to the business or industry in which he isengaged. No man has a moral right to withhold his supportfrom an organization that is striving to improve conditionswithin his sphere.” 2009, Sheldon WolfeBUCH NOTES(continued from page 6)idea for the book was presented to her publishercoincidentally, the day before the World Trade Centerdisaster in 2001, the national event with probably the mostsignificance for all of us, and the event for which a monumenthas yet to be built.Dupre, whose previous books include “SKYSCRAPERS”,“BRIDGES”, and “CHURCHES”, is a Studio Art and Englishgraduate of Brown University. She is currently a scholar atthe Yale School of Divinity. The book was published byRandom House in 2007. It has 250 carefully designed pagesand is loaded with many excellent photographs.JULY MEETINGPhotos by Jerry Foster
