Parting is indeed such sweet sorrow for the annual HOK Arts and Education Council fundraiser has concluded. Until next year, it can be said ‘for you and I are past our dancing days’!
It’s not a stretch that I would be quoting William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet when the St. Louis office is home to two wonderful actors, Margaret Goodin and Charlie Lutz. They delighted us Friday with the famous Balcony Scene of Romeo and Juliet and we were dazzled to say the least! Direction came from Rick Deline (center photo), Director of the St. Louis Shakespeare Festival, and Margaret and Charlie were chosen based on officewide bids between 3 Romeos and 3 Juliets.

The New Year should begin with a bang… so Ladies and Gentlemen let me introduce Michelle Pinkston! A landscape designer for the Planning Group who is based in St. Louis, Michelle is a dedicated and incredibly creative team member with an endless supply of positive energy and ideas.

John Vogl, the sick and awesome mind behind The Bungaloo here in St Louis, is the nephew of Mark Vogl, Vice President of the Planning Group , and he, quite frankly, rocks.
John was recently highlighted in an interview at OMG Posters, and it’s hilarious. At my house, we own several of John’s posters which are ragingly displayed all over our house. Add one to your home and you’ll smile a little bit each time you see it. Enjoy!

Landscape architect and fellow blogger Michelle Pinkston was hardly at a loss for words when asked to explain what makes HOK a great place to work.
She spoke about her unique work environment, projects, opportunities to serve and support.
“HOK is one of the best places to work because I get to do what I love to do everyday, and because this place would never stop me from doing that,” she says.
Who could deny someone this charming?
