‘Eco-architect’ looks forward to working with Albion community

If the details can be worked out, a young internationally known “eco-architect” from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln said he would like to form a relationship with the Albion community and possibly work on projects here.

Martin Despang, a native of Germany and associate professor at the UNL School of Architecture, has developed a friendship with Paul and Lori Hosford of Albion over the past several weeks.

Because of this friendship, Martin and his friend Petra Kleinlein, also a native of Germany, visited Albion last Friday and spent some time looking at the Boone County Museum and the community.

Martin said he liked both the people and the prospects for projects here. He said he would like to form a relationship between the community and the School of Architecture for possible future projects.
