RISD"Derek and Dean provide wonderfully informative tours of Plymouth Quarries for young and emerging landscape architecture students. They are incredibly generous with their time and resources and genuinely interested in fostering stronger relationships between students, designers, masons, and stone quarries. Their diverse experience in the field allows for them to engage in conversations about materials and design from multiple perspectives. Each year we look forward to visiting Plymouth Quarries to learn about their new practices in sustainability, material sourcing, and stone processing. Derek and Dean are a wonderful resource for anyone looking to learn more about stone and the various ways it can be implemented in architectural and landscape design.”
