    Letter from the Editor: Enjoy the Views

    When I look out my office window, I can see an approximately three-block stretch of real estate that terminates at the southern shoreline of Lake Mendota — one of two lakes that form the Madison isthmus. The neighborhood is a hodgepodge of turn-of-the-century private residences, a couple of aging yet stately brick buildings that sit atop of the University of Wisconsin's fraternity row, and a few 1960s-era office buildings and churches. It's a scene that represents an amalgam of design trends across time, with the expansive lake acting as a dramatic backdrop to a collection of structures neatly built for function without too much thought given to how they fit within the context of the neighborhood.

    Letter from the Editor: Common Ground

    It's an interesting time to be part of this industry. In recent months, sport has again realized its platform as an effective channel for social and cultural debate. Whether or not you feel strongly about protests taking place on the sidelines of NFL games — and those at the college and high school levels — it's hard to ignore that this industry finds itself at the epicenter of a politically charged conversation.
