The Mississippi Business Journal shares historical anecdotes and testimonial interviews from Principals, Roy Decker and Anne Marie Duvall Decker, and Arlington Center for Community Engagement client, Walt Cabe, discussing the 25-year history and inspiration of the practice.

“From the start, the couple believed that architecture was more than aesthetics or a source of income.

In those early days, he said, “We just felt like the architecture profession could be redefined to be a leader in the community, providing opportunities for economic development and working for a more healthy environment and society.
