Timothy Mark Woodle, AIA / by Shana Reiss

A wonderful man who designed many of San Luis Obispo County's iconic structures has passed. We all have many wonderful stories about how Tim Woodle touched our lives and we wanted to share briefly the impact he has had here.

Tim was Shana's mentor through her internship and much of the early part of her career. He was also one of her biggest fans. Tim was always quick to laugh, encourage others, and was a lifelong learner. Shana had the opportunity to work with Tim on his final and possibly most challenging and exciting project - a very large production winery and accompanying buildings in Huailai County near Beijing, China. Tim enjoyed the challenge of cross-cultural design and the teaching of his craft to our international team. The images shown are from trips to Beijing.

Tim will be missed by everyone at Reiss Design Studio and by the community he had such a great impact on. RIP
