At Waterworks, we absolutely love stone. It has a remarkable history that is around 4.6 billion years old, reflecting that its formation is extremely complicated. As the earth was formed, secrets were disguised in multiple layers beneath the surface. When man discovered these hidden gems, quite by accident, he wanted to extract them from gigantic mountains and large mounds. Of course, he had to construct tools and corral thousands of men with their raw strength to haul huge blocks from the site. The early use of levers and fulcrums helped ease the job.

I was honored when Phillip James Dodd (an author and expert on classical architecture and interiors) asked me to write a chapter for his new book on the subject of collaboration. He also invited 16 other architects, designers, landscape architects, vendors and artisans to contribute their views as well. It is clear that teamwork and partnership are pivotal to successfully launching any new product, building a house or developing a new way of thinking. At Waterworks, we work in cross-functional teams where the expertise of our partners, from creative design and financial planning to sourcing and purchasing, is critical to the success of a project.
