Event: “Design Matters” with Scott Marble at University of Calgary

December 20, 2013

Scott Marble has been selected for the William Lyon Somerville Visiting Lectureship position at the University of Calgary, Faculty of Environmental Design (EVDS). He will conduct a workshop and give a public lecture at the Downtown Campus on January 8.

From the EVDS website:

Design Matters is a thought provoking lecture series, organized by the Faculty of Environmental Design (EVDS), that brings to Calgary a range of important speakers who will explore design in our contemporary culture. Lectures are delivered from September to April, and feature provocative speakers who examine issues in architecture, urban design, product design, and landscape ecology. The series challenges the University community and the public to broaden their thinking on a myriad of issues related to design. Design Matters is also an opportunity to engage with interested citizens, students, public officials, urban planners, designers, architects and many others. Design Matters engages people who want to learn, understand and address design issues affecting our community.

Design Matters with Scott Marble will weave together his recent work around the theme of workflows as a practitioner, writer and teacher. It will include a presentation of projects by Marble Fairbanks, excerpts from his new book and a synopsis of his research project at Columbia University, the Columbia Building Intelligence Project.
