DesignMind: Lecture on Feb 18 Educating Architects

President's Blog

For 30 years, Friends of San Diego Architecture has been presenting inspiring lectures and community-centered conversations about our built environment. We are proud to host their meetings and public lectures every third Saturday of the month on the NewSchool of Architecture & Design campus.

On Saturday, February 18, at 9:30 a.m., I have the privilege of presenting to this group about “Educating Architects in Sustainability.”My presentation will include a discussion of the nature of a design education, the context of design decisions, and examples of work from architects and students. This includes an energy-related design project and a presentation about the importance of international travel for informing design practices.

Whether you are practicing architect or designer, aficionado, student, or someone considering these professions, this is a wonderful opportunity to learn about what it means to be a Citizen Architect or Designer who employs sustainable and regenerative practices in the development of the buildings and artifacts of life.

The event is free for students, and a suggested donation of $5 for all others. I look forward to seeing you there.
