You say ayyyyy, I say moo.




eh. Again like a lot of firms here I would say "consistent" which is different from mediocre. Kirksey does consistent, and reliable work. They definitely don't turn heads, but would say they are a solid firm, as far as a corporate firm goes.

A design competition was held last year for 8020 Katy Fwy. Initial plans also called for a hotel component.




I also wouldn't put to much stock into things found on this site. I remember once looking to do some freelance work by doing little competitions on here, but its extremely rare that anything from here actually becomes a project. Most on that site are simply looking for design ideas and possible best approaches. Would take anything that you find there with a large grain of salt.
