Compatibility, stresses Rojkind, is a big deal in architecture. “People ask me, ‘If you’re doing an architectural drawing on your Mac, how are you going to send it to your structural engineer who works on a PC?’ I tell them it’s no problem. The Mac has taken care of that. I’ve convinced so many people to switch to the Mac. I’m hooked for life on the Mac. I wouldn’t go to any other system.”

Each project Rojkind undertakes represents a heart-and-soul commitment. “If a design doesn’t turn me on,” he states, “something is wrong. And if I cannot imagine myself using the space I’m designing, I won’t present it.” Adhering to those principles keeps the young architect true to his inner compass - though the needle doesn’t always point to a fat bottom line. “I choose to do what I really believe in,” he says simply. “So designing a house with Roman pillars for a client who wants Roman pillars, just for the money, is something I’d never agree to.” “It’s a personal matter,” he concludes. “I’d go back to drumming before doing architecture that lets me down.”
