Welcome to my World (Go to my website for more information and follow my blog at www.bobybarra.com) My career as a Building Designer began as a young boy living in a suburb of Los Angeles. Across the street was a strip center with a Thriftymart (if you remember that chain you are older than you think). Between it and the Five and Dime store was an appliance store. Often I would drag home from the rear of that appliance store every large cardboard appliance box I could get my hands on. Once collected into the back yard I would go hunting for my mom’s King Kong scissor she used for cutting heavy fabric. I had to make use of them quickly before she discovered their absence as she didn’t like it much when I dulled her sizers on cardboard. Taking scissors in hand I would cut openings in the boxes for doorways and windows. Basically fabricate houses, forts, imaginary air-raid shelters, or whatever the focus of play was for me and friends. And if I wasn’t cutting boxes I was stretching my bed sheets across my bedroom, stapling the corners and edges to the wall, into a tension structure. When I was in Jr-High I had my first exposure to a T-Square and other drafting tools. In metal shop we had to complete the drafting of an object before we could start putting hand to tool. I got a C+ on my first try but enjoyed it so much I redrew it and got a higher grade. Since then I knew I wanted to design and eventually I attended Southern California School of Architecture (Sci-Arc) in LA. I have a special joy in designing residential projects but what is even more special to me are the people I have had the privilege designing for. Bob
