The Pioneering Force for Global Impact Through Design.


FROM THE DEAN The legacy of professional education at our School is 107 years old. And now, by any measure, our ability to prepare our students to become leaders in their chosen architectural and design professions is stronger than ever. Our strength comes from a confluence of innovative curricula, pioneering faculty, committed industry and

network of 12,000 Jayhawks, which encompasses 1,000 students and 11,000 alumni. In this issue of KUDOS, we examine the sturdy foundation the School builds underneath its students. Through internships and co-op programs in Europe, Asia, and elsewhere, we provide our students with the integrated, on-the-job experience they need to succeed. Through our portfolio and professional practice classes, our Portfolio Review Night, Mock Interview Night and Career Fair, we provide the tools and personal

connections our soon-to-be graduates need to get their first professional jobs. Our graduates are in growing demand. But a foundation includes more than experiences and skill sets. A truly strong foundation also provides perspective. In this issue, we look at the perspective provided by understanding the evolution of a design career, which stretches from frightened rookie, to confident mid-career practitioner, and then to mission-driven leader. We examine the perspective of experienced alumni. In a new white paper, 10 members of the Arc/D Dean’s Advisory Board report that their work has convinced them that learning the skillset of a single discipline is no longer the path to success for either the practitioner as an individual or society as a whole.

FACULTY ACCOLADES

“FARMING IS A BUZZ.” Assistant Professor of Design Tim Hossler’s New Farmers Exhibition is wrapping up successful runs at the Wichita Art Museum in Wichita, Kansas and the Great Plains Art Museum in Lincoln, Nebraska, but the buzz persists. The exhibit can still be viewed online at www.newfarmersproject.com. The New Farmers Project is a joint effort by Hossler, photographer Bryon Darby, and sociologist Paul Stock to profile the lives and thoughts of contemporary Kansas farmers. One new farmer is quoted on the project website saying, “All of this fascinates me so much, you know? Farming is a buzz.” The project site continues that this is “a buzz that gives farmers’ lives meaning. And that meaning comes from more than just the places or crops they farm, but connects to the wider times and social networks involved.” _ Jessica, Nora Lee, and Jake, Jefferson County, Kansas.

An accompanying New Farmers book, designed by Tim Hossler, was released at the end of 2018. Working as an interpretive extension of the two exhibitions, the book is a documentation of the fieldwork that was conducted between 2014 and 2018.

CRUCIAL INSIGHT Architecture Assistant Professor Farhan Karim has embarked on a three-year project to use the lens of art and architecture to understand the decolonization of the British Empire and India’s partition. Studying the political processes that both ended British rule in India and created Pakistan and Bangladesh is crucial today because the world faces many of the same challenges such as the forced displacement of populations, migration, rising isolationism, and climate change. Karim has partnered with Maristella Casciato, senior curator of architectural collections at the Getty Research Institute in Los Angeles, and art historian Zirwat Chowdhury on the project under the aegis of and with funding from the Getty. The project’s first phase, a workshop where 14 scholars presented work on “The Art and Architecture of Partition and Confederation: Pakistan 1933-1971,” was held at the

on the subject.

Professor Andrea Herstowski and two now-former students, Chloe Hubler and Jenny O’Grady used analog and digital processes to create a digital typeface based on National Park Service signage. The original lettering--found on the iconic wooden signs at National Parks across the country--is an important artifact of both the history of American environmental conservation and car culture. Until this project’s completion, the typeface had never been digitized. “People from all over the world have been downloading it,” Shellhorn says. “It was something fun for me, and the students got a great experience because they got to contribute to the national parks. They got to give the rangers something that the rangers wouldn’t have otherwise had the expertise to do.”

expected, along with an edited volume of scholarship

Noting the recent tendency of scholars to look to “interpretive frameworks other than those of communalism and sectarianism (i.e. Hindus versus Muslims),” Karim and partners urged workshop participants to try to “offer alternatives to the primacy of charismatic leaders (e.g. Gandhi and Nkrumah) within post-colonial histories.” They also examined how various artistic media “engendered the aspirations, often convergent and often conflicting, of a state and a people,” and how, conversely, they “nurtured relationships among people at and across borders.”

The Design Outside Studio collaborates with organizations, parks, rangers and individuals to enhance, preserve and promote outdoor experiences in the nation’s parks and wild lands. The project has been recently featured in multiple publications, including Fast Company, Engadget, Mental Floss, and more. The National Park Typeface can be downloaded for free at www.nationalparktypeface.com.

KU DESIGN STUDENTS IN COMMUNICATION ARTS The work of Visual Communication students Lauren Hakmiller and Kayle Riebel is featured in the 2019 Communication Arts Interactive Annual. This is the fifth-straight year KU Design students have been featured. Past selected students include Ashton Dewey and Caroline Degnan in 2018; Megan Snelten and Kylie Van Deven in 2017; Madeline Bonn and Kyliee Alvarez in 2016; and Jonathan Heter in 2015.

A WINNING DESIGN Bhaswati Mukherjee, Mohammed Alsinan, and Shummer Roddick have won Contract magazine’s 2018 Healthcare Environment Student Award for their design of a veterans wellness village. The three were inspired by the high rate of veterans who return to the U.S. with mental health issues. “The project was the result of our investigations, which showed how the mental health of the nation’s veterans is not being adequately addressed,” Mukherjee says. Contract, in partnership with the Center for Health Design, presents the

DIRT WORKS WINS MASTERPRIZE The Architecture MasterPrize (formerly AAP) has named Dirt Works Studio’s Makerstudio project the winner of its Interior Design / Commercial Interior, student category, for 2018. Dirt Works beat entrants from around the world. The Makerstudio project, also known as Studio of the Future, was funded by donations from global architecture and design firm Populous and furniture maker Herman Miller. MasterPrize winners attend a winners event, and enjoy extensive publicity showcasing their designs to a worldwide audience. Their designs are featured in the AMP Book of Architecture.

Regional and Urban Design. The KU group participated in a project called “Salty Urbanism: Sea Level Rise Adaptation Strategies for Urban Areas Location,” which suggested an adaptive strategy that could allow coastal communities to continue to function even with water levels far above present norms. Projecting a series of “hydro-urbanisms,” the designers imagined new archipelago communities, canal-like streets, and deliberately marshy waterfronts, supported by innovative new infrastructure that could allow cities to thrive even under conditions of extreme flooding, while mitigating the effects of future severe weather events. Architects Brooks+Scarpa led the effort that included three universities. The KU team included students Nicholas Bontrager, Camille Cieutat, Anna Collins, Patrick Griffin, Jake Lester, Pennie Liu, Zachary Overschmidt, Kevin Purdom, Quentin Rabu, Nicolas Rakowski, Spencer Reed, Emma Riordan, Hannah Rupprecht, Claire Ryan, Joseph Schaefer-Glick, Mitchell Starrs, and Hannah Underwood.

PRAIRIE ACRE CLASSROOM AND PAVILION Paola Sanguinetti’s ARCH 508 design-build studio created an open-air educational venue that will be utilized by the KU Center for Sustainability and the Environmental Studies program. Overlooking a patch of untouched prairie on the southern slope of Mount Oread and with a view that extends into the hills beyond Lawrence, the openly accessible Prairie Acre Classroom and Pavilion will also provide the KU and Lawrence communities a new opportunity to enjoy the beauty of campus. A wood and steel pavilion provides shade and gracefully avows the site. Low, serpentine walls constructed of limestone and concrete follow the topography of the hillside and provide areas to sit and recline. The project, envisioned during the 2018 Spring Semester and completed at the conclusion of Fall 2018 by third and fourth-year students, is an enormous achievement that will be appreciated for years to come.

Arc/D students and multiple faculty advisors including Associate Professor Andrea Herstowski, worked with Palo Alto, California nonprofit Live in Peace in January on the physical build-out and visual design of 2524 Raven Riders, a community bike shop. “Raven Riders is a perfect example of how we can use design for good,” Herstowski says. “Design for good is an approach that uses problem-solving, we created a space that will drive positive change in East Palo Alto.” The space they worked on was a recently gutted warehouse. The architecture and industrial design students began the project by building benches, painting the space, designing and organizing the bike shop. Next they learned how to take apart a bike, fix it, paint it, put it back together, and teach someone else how to do it. Meanwhile, visual communication design students worked on a visual identity for the bike shop. “We couldn’t have done the project without the help of many people but a special thanks goes to Heather Starnes-Logwood, the Executive Director of Live in Peace; Pam Dorr, Director of Affordable Housing for the Blocks Program at Soup; Eugene Jackson, Live in Peace staff; and the great contractors Brad “B-Rad” Nickle, Michale “Mike Mike” McNack and Rashaud Griffie”.

THE EVOLUTION OF A CAREER Like all human endeavors, the career of an Arc/D graduate from KU evolves over time. There is the excitement and sometime drudgery of your rookie season on the job, the explorations of mid-career, and the missions of mature leadership. Lauren Janney (industrial design, BFA, 2007) and David G. Broz (BArch, 1997), both members of the Dean’s Alumni Advisory Board, are two of the many graduates whose experiences highlight this progression, and providing the support they needed was the foundation they built at KU.

FINDING THAT FIRST JOB

18

KUDOS 2019


We all remember the search for our first professional job: the sweaty palms, the uncertainty, and yes, sometimes even the panic. Whether our field was architecture or design, we had just spent years transforming ourselves from frightened freshmen to confident students, only to discover that the task of leaving Mount Oread and finding our first real job could feel overwhelming.


Cue Interior Architecture and Design Program Director Nilou Vakil, Architecture Associate Professor Jae Chang, Visual Communication Associate Professor Andrea Herstowski, Illustration and Animation Professor Barry Fitzgerald, Photo Media Professor Elise Kirk, Industrial Design Associate Professor May Tveit, and other faculty members from the School of Architecture & Design. These fine folks make it their mission to reduce the blood pressure of graduating students by providing them with the tools and confidence they need to find the right job when they graduate.

The faculty do this by teaching classes and workshops in professional practice and portfolio development, in researching a target job market, and in best practices for reaching out to potential employers. They also bring professionals to campus to conduct portfolio reviews and mock interviews. Vakil oversees Architecture’s Portfolio Review Night, Chang oversees Architecture’s Mock Interview Night, and Herstowski (Visual Communication), Fitzgerald (Illustration & Animation), Kirk (Photography) and Tveit (Industrial Design) teach courses in either portfolio development or promotion and marketing for designers. All of this effort culminates every spring

Finding a Job: Doing the Coursework Classes can provide students with a starting point for their job search, and relevant classes are offered in all of the School’s disciplines. As well as reviewing other aspects of the profession, professional practice courses introduce students to the rigors of internships, registration, and certification, teach them how to contact employers, nurture professional relationships, and grow their career. Portfolio development courses give students the time and training they need to create and refine their first professional portfolio. Herstowski created her course for students majoring in Visual Communication. “In the class, we focus on preparing everything students need to get a job like their self-brand,” she says. “What does that look like? How will they promote themselves? What kinds of materials might they send out before an interview? Might they want to send something extra? As designers we all like stuff, but it has to be cool stuff. They can’t just send out a lame postcard. We work on creating clean, legible, and correctly worded resumes. We also go over what they need for their online presence.” The class also provides students with opportunities to work on projects, giving them time to complete unfinished work, and guidance on how to fine tune their existing projects. Tveit’s portfolio class for industrial design majors enables students to do the same. The class also asks them to identify a position that would be their dream job and to map the skills, experience, and process they would have to

pursue to turn their dream into a reality.

_ Associate Professor May Tveit looks on as industrial design students present their work in class.

Fitzgerald begins his course on promotion and marketing for illustration by requiring students to narrow their job search to one market, whether that is editorial (websites, magazines, or newspapers), children’s books, game development, animation, or corporate work with a company like Hallmark Cards. His students are then required to research the key businesses working within that market, and identify the people who do the hiring. His students also have to decide whether or not they’re looking for part-time or full-time work, where they want to live, and to look for professionals who currently do the kind of work they want to do.

“By the end of the class, they feel pretty confident they can get a job.” Andrea Herstowski

After researching their prospective job markets, students then prepare the materials they need to approach their target market, such as a website, digital portfolio, physical portfolio, resume, branding system, artistic statement, and an elevator speech (that 30-second pitch you use to introduce yourself to a key person in an elevator or at a meeting). As well as being hard work, these classes can also be emotional. “Mostly what I see from students is panic,” Herstowski says. “They go through a roller coaster of emotions all semester. Coming in they can think that they’ve procrastinated too long, but by the end of the class, they feel pretty confident they can get a job.” THE UNIVERSITY OF KANSAS

Finding a Job: Coming Face to Face with Employers As helpful as class assignments can be, they can’t substitute for the experience of meeting with a prospective employer. Through mock interviews, portfolio reviews, and interactions with professionals in classes, students receive ample opportunities to go one-on-one with working professionals. For students like Georgiana Singleton, a fourth-year architecture student, such opportunities are transformative. Not only did Singleton go from being “super nervous” to “comfortable” during a mock interview via Skype with the South Korean firm Haenglim, she was also able to set herself up to later win an internship with the firm. “I kept thinking that if this interview doesn’t go well, it could mean I couldn’t intern with them, but then we started talking,” she says. “We started with small talk and learning about each other, and as the interview went on, I got more comfortable. I think going through the interview with them and putting a face to my internship application really helped me.” The mock interviews and portfolio reviews are two separate events for architecture students that occur in the fall and work a bit like speed dating. Students meet with two to three different groups of professionals in each event, moving from group to group in Marvin and Chalmers Halls. On Mock Interview Night, students try out their interviewing skills. On Portfolio Review Night, they get feedback on their portfolio from architects. Both events are open to students at all levels with first-year students observing as more advanced students are put through their paces. Firms participating in recent events include AECOM, Corgan, M+H Architects, IAA, Odimo, Gastinger&Walker, Clark Huesemann, RNL Design, DP Architects, CannonDesign, HOK, SCB, The Clark Enersen Partners, Hoefer

Wysocki, TreanorHL, Gould Evans, Populous, Hollis + Miller, Paragon, DLR Group, and BRR Architecture.

“Students are constantly in their own bubbles,” Vakil says. “This is an effort to get them out of their bubbles, to encourage them in the interaction they need to face design consultants and clients, to interact professionally with others, and to distinguish between professional and school attire. It is our job to set our students up for success in all ways possible and give them the space to practice professional interactions in a non-threatening way.

Rachel Roberts, a fourth-year architecture student, called the portfolio review a great experience. “It was nice to be able to bring a draft of my portfolio and get feedback on it in a low-stakes environment and to get to know what professionals were looking for.”

Chang cautions that students shouldn’t expect to land jobs through these events, although some like Singleton have done well. “Primarily, Mock Interview Night is to help students prepare for the real thing _ Architecture students during Fall’s annual Mock Interview Night.

which takes place at the [Career] Fair in February. We hope interview night will break the ice for students. Some of them have never had an interview like this before. This eases them into it in a low-pressure environment, but I do tell interviewers not to hold anything back, and to provide students with feedback on anything from their clothing, their posture, their portfolio. Everything is fair game.”

Finding a Job: Going to the Fair Every spring the preparation of architecture and design students culminates with the Architecture and Design Career Fair in February. Held in the newly rebuilt Burge Union, the 2019 Career Fair hosted 60 architecture and design firms that were seeking full-time employees and interns. Many of the participants in the Career Fair had also sent representatives to the mock interview and portfolio review events, and to various classes. Among the 2019 participants in the Career Fair were TreanorHL, Yaeger Architecture, Inc., WRA Architects, Wold Architects & Engineers, TK Architects International, The Lawrence Group, The Clark Enersen Partners, t. howard + associates architects, Spangenberg Phillips Tice Architecture, SFS Architecture, Schwerdt Design Group, RHA Architects, Paragon Architecture, GLMV Architecture, Gray Design Group, Helix Architecture & Design, HMN Architects, HNTB Corporation, Hoefer Wysocki Architects, Hollis+Miller Architects, HTK Architects, International Architects Atelier, JPrice Architecture, Klover Architects, KTGY, LK Architecture, Looney Ricks Kiss, Neumann Monson Architects, NSPJ Architects, Oculus, Finkle Williams, E4H Environments for Health, DLR Group, Dewberry, Davidson Architecture and Engineering, Cuhaci & Peterson, CRB, Crawford Architects, Corgan, CannonDesign, BRR Architecture, Boulder Associates Architects, Black & Veatch, bcDESIGNGROUP, and Arcturis.

Design students are able to visit with professionals during their courses. Herstowksi regularly brings professionals into her portfolio development class. “This means that students aren’t just hearing my voice, they’re hearing from other professionals,” she says. “We do portfolio reviews and mock interviews. Students talk to at least three professionals for a half an hour each. Students will present their portfolio and talk through it so when they go for a real interview they’re comfortable they’ve gotten the right words out.” _ Alumnae Ashley Park, Alexa Kaczor, and soom to be graduate Lauren Downie represented the Beck Group at this year’s fair.

TO BUILD CHANGE

GREGORY CRICHLOW 26

KUDOS 2019


We all think we know about gentrification—the process whereby the prosperous move into a struggling neighborhood, buy up every inch, install their shops and bike paths, and force an increase in property values that prices residents out of their own homes. But what if increased investment—and especially investment in bicycles and bike infrastructure—can provide those who struggle financially with a road out of their fight? What if architects can lead the way? Finding the answers to those questions is the mission of Gregory Crichlow, Architecture’s newest assistant professor. Crichlow came to KU as the Langston Hughes Visiting Professor of Architecture. In March he was appointed to a tenure-track position, and he begins that new position in the 2019 Fall Semester.

PART OF SOMETHING BIGGER Legacy Project Seeks to Preserve & Display History To attend KU Arc/D is to be involved in something far larger than yourself. For design students, taking classes here and graduating from KU is to follow a path that was laid down 152 years ago by the first students to attend KU. For architecture students, studying here means following in the footsteps laid down over 107 years by the many Jayhawks who have kept on the lights in Marvin Hall. “To be in this School is to be part of something bigger than yourself,” says Associate Architecture Professor Steve Padget. All of this is why Padget, Architecture Lecturer J. Todd Achelpohl, Architecture Professor Stephen Grabow, Architecture Professor Kent F Spreckelmeyer, Hatch Media Center Director Dan Rolf, and Associate Dean Mike Swann have formed an ad hoc committee to preserve the School’s history and to create a permanent exhibition. They’ve informally dubbed their committee, The Legacy Project, Rolf says.

G “I think it’s always important for people to understand their place in the scheme of things,” Achelpohl says. “It’s a basic human value. The Architecture program has been the home of faculty members who sat side by side with Frank Lloyd Wright and developed projects with him, and people who worked with Buckminster Fuller and many others. In the age of the Internet, our students are not connected to that because the story isn’t online. We need to preserve it.”

A Spreckelmeyer first came to campus as a student in 1968. He got involved in the project because of his personal interest in preserving the history he remembers. “I remember old Marvin. We’ve come through a period where we don’t do a lot of things like we used to do like watercolors and hand drawings. Student have no idea that’s how architects used to work.” Although begun by architecture faculty, the Legacy Project is also seeking to preserve the history of the School’s professional design programs: Illustration and Animation, Industrial Design, Photo Media, and Visual Communication Design. That history predates Architecture’s. Art was among the first classes taught on campus in 1867. “I’m eager to get all the material we can from Design,” Rolf says.

C The Legacy Project is seeking help from alumni who are interested in donating to the project. Among the materials sought are photographs and ephemera created by student groups or faculty like independent publications, ‘zines and pamphlets. Artifacts and papers are also welcome.

CLASS OF 1980 LAUNCHES CAMPAIGN When the 40th anniversary of their graduation arrives next year, the KU Architecture Class of 1980 intends to celebrate by making certain future students receive a priceless gift—the gift of time with a world-class architect. Class alumni Bill Quatman, Mark Hugeback, and Becky Cotton are leading the effort, known as The 80+40 Campaign, to raise $100,000 for a new lectureship fund that will bring a renowned expert in the field of architecture to campus, preferably in the area of technology application. The group has already raised more than $64,000. Quatman, Hugeback, and Cotton launched the campaign by collectively committing $30,000, and tracking down their classmates with the help of KU and social media. Quatman says they see their campaign as both repaying their own debts to KU Architecture and giving future students the same kinds of inspiring experiences they had in school. “I’ve always been indebted to KU for the architecture education it gave me,” Quatman says. “We all feel that way. We also recognize that funding is tight for all universities right now, and we wanted to make certain future students get the opportunities we had. One of the things that made our five years memorable were visits by some of the nation’s and world’s finest architects. They came to campus, gave lectures, and went into our studios to work on projects with us and give us tips.” Among the architects who visited the Class of 1980 when they were in Marvin Hall were César Pelli, the architect of the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, and Charles Moore, known for his exuberant designs, including Piazza d’Italia in New Orleans. The 80+40 Campaign is also an opportunity for The Class of 1980 to honor the unique bond they built as architecture students at KU. “Architecture is such a demanding major,” Quatman says. “Marvin Hall was the one building on campus where the lights stayed on. You didn’t just go class, take notes, and go home, you stayed in Marvin and worked on projects far into the night.” Dean Mahesh Daas thanked The Class of 1980 for its efforts. “We are deeply grateful for their generosity and their hard work to fund the first endowed fund for a lecture series in architecture in the School’s history,” Daas says. “The Class of 1980 is providing an invaluable example for other classes as well as providing a lasting impact that will benefit KU architecture students far into the future.” Quatman earned a bachelor’s of environmental design from KU in 1980, a BArch from KU in 1983, and a law degree from the University of Missouri, Kansas City, in 1984. He is the general counsel and senior vice president of Burns & McDonnell in Kansas City, Missouri. In October, Quatman was named to the inaugural class of Fellows of The Design-Build Institute of America. Hugeback earned a bachelor’s of environmental design from KU in 1980. Today he is a principal at M+H Architects in St. Louis, Missouri, a 28-person firm, specializing in mission critical, corporate, private education, and warehouse/distribution facility projects across the country. Cotton has retired from the practice of architecture. Previously she served as a senior vice president of HNTB Architecture and was an owner and principal of Mackey Mitchell Zahner Architects in Kansas City, Missouri. Donations to The 80+40 Campaign can be made as a one-time gift or a multi-year pledge.

DESIGN EDUCATION IN A RAPIDLY CHANGING WORLD The Advisory Board Speaks

F U T U R _ _ Members of the Arc/D community including the Dean’s Advisory Board, faculty, staff, and students participated in a strategic visioning session to explore facets of the student experience.

Learning the skills of a single discipline no longer serves either society or newly minted Arc/D graduates, reports a new white paper on the future of design education. Completed in January 2019 by Arc/D’s Dean’s Advisory Board, the paper draws on the insights and experiences of 10 board members.

The board produced the paper after meeting with KU’s Interim Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor Carl Lejuez in October 2018. In that meeting, he requested more information on their view of the future of the design professions. Board members provided their perspectives in writing, and Board Chair Kathy Achelpohl edited the paper with the help of Kristen Cable, communications and public relations manager for Dimensional Innovations, whose CEO Tucker Trotter is Vice Chair of the Board. “The paper is a window into the state of the design and architecture professions today,” Achelpohl says. “Board members told us – based on their current day-to-day project work and in some cases, decades of experience - that architecture and design education needs to more effectively model the interdisciplinary professional world to ensure the success of our graduates.” The key today and especially in the future is to understand that design education and practice must be both integrated and interdisciplinary. “Designers are practicing today in the context of a rapidly changing world in which social issues, climate issues, rapidly changing global economies, and transportation disruptions are rapidly moving toward, or already have, a central place in day-to-day project work and considerations in practice,” the paper notes. “Competition for designers has increased; the ability to outsource design functions 24/7 around the globe is getting easier and easier. The global marketplace and access to software has made design more competitive, and basic design skills and understandings are no longer enough to build a career around.” The paper notes that design education is also being transformed by changes in accreditation requirements that include more practice-based criteria, by the hunger of clients to work with practitioners with broad experience, and by the expansion of design-led thinking into new areas of work. “The design-led approach, no matter the organization or industry, allows for prototyping, failure, empathy for the human experience, and a flexibility that enables agility to find solutions,” the paper notes. “This trend alone will be disruptive to design practice on a global scale. In fact, several large organizations which have not historically been design-focused are quietly working to place design at the center of their decisions as they grapple with making the necessary changes to meet and exceed the quickly changing dynamic of consumers. For example, in Lyft’s efforts to completely rethink and change transportation methods and systems, they’ve hired a diverse range of designers to lead the charge.”

To read the full paper, visit: www.arcd.ku.edu/deans-advisory-board

This interdisciplinary approach must be extended to the classroom to prepare the next generation of architects and designers, the paper notes. Internships and co-op programs must also be expanded. KU’s offerings, including its new Interior Architecture and Design program, have already put the University in a position to move in this direction. Steve McDowell, director of design for BNIM, concludes: “Design is often considered a luxury or necessary evil. Both are wrong. Design is a requisite for solving the issues that face society and our globe. It is about innovations in the design industries and construction industries to transform how buildings and products are conceived, researched, modeled, prototyped, documented and realized. There is so much opportunity.”
