Kent State’s College of Architecture and Environmental Design Presents Speaker SeriesPosted Feb. 17, 2014
Kent State University’s College of Architecture and Environmental Design will host three speakers during its “Celebrate CAED” speaker series. Elwin C. Robison, Ph.D., professor in the College of Architecture and Environmental Design, will lead the first lecture on Feb. 19 at 7 p.m. in the Schwartz Center Auditorium (Room 177).
Robison will speak on the topic "Design, Construction and Conservation of the 1867 Salt Lake Tabernacle." Robison's lecture will detail the conservation efforts surrounding the Mormon Tabernacle as part of his recent book with W. Randall Dixon, Gathering As One: The Architecture of the Mormon Tabernacle in Salt Lake City. The presentation is being offered as part of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Continuing Education System (AIA/CES) for AIA CES-1 LU/HSW through AIA Akron. This is equal to one contact hour for other organizations requiring continuing education.
“Whereas this is not exactly a lecture series, it is a chance for the College of Architecture and Environmental Design to open our experts up to a broader audience that includes colleagues, students, faculty throughout Kent State, professionals and the interested public,” says Bill Willoughby, associate dean of the College of Architecture and Environmental Design, who will introduce each speaker.
The series continues on March 5 and April 23.
David Jurca, associate director of Kent State's Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative (CUDC), will present "COLDscapes 2013: Competition, Exhibit and Book" on March 5. Jurca's lecture will introduce “The Center for Outdoor Living Design” (COLD) that the CUDC launched this year with a competition, book and exhibition.
On April 23, Diane Davis-Sikora, Registered Architect (RA) and associate professor at the College of Architecture and Environmental Design, will present "Structures of Air," a lecture and film screening of her film selected for the 2013 Rotterdam Architecture Film Festival (AFFR).
All lectures are free and open to the public. For more information, contact Willoughby at email@example.com.
