Gordon Mead Stewart is an architect who grew up in Bowie, Maryland. His architectural work ranges from a timber-frame retreat on Virginia’s Northern Neck to an office/retail/parking tower that includes a monorail station in downtown Seattle, and from a childcare building in West Virginia to a radar station in Honduras.
His Parisienne wife, Jacqueline, works as a scientist at nearby NASA Goddard. Her desire to raise their family in Bowie probably helped spark these memories. Since 1992 their home has been a Levitt colonial on Belair Drive facing Bowie’s “tree tunnel”, a bridal path lined with beech trees.
