The NDSU Department of Architecture and Landscape Architecture will present "The Future of Design Education," a symposium scheduled for March 26-27 at the Fargo Moorhead Community Theatre, located at 333 4th St. S. in Fargo.
The symposium offers panel discussions and open forums with leading national, regional and local design professionals. They will address aspirations, challenges and anticipated goals for design education.
"This symposium is important because it addresses both the role good design plays in modern life, such as beautiful buildings, landscapes, and products and the practical application of great design in solving complex real-world problems," said David Bertolini, professor and chair of architecture and landscape architecture. "This leads to an important question: how should design be taught in a dynamic and changing world that is comprised of diverse local and global interests? We have brought together leading experts from around the country, region and the world to present and discuss their views."
Scheduled speakers include:
• Greg Lynn, UCLA School of Architecture and Urban Design
• Mahesh Daas, chair of the Department of Architecture and ACSA Distinguished Professor, Ball State University, College of Architecture and Planning
• Tom Fisher, professor and dean of the College of Design, University of Minnesota
• Kristine Jensen, landscape architect, Arkitekt Kristine Jensen, Denmark
• Garth Rockcastle, University of Maryland School of Architecture and MSR Architecture
• Alice Twemlow, chair and co-founder of New York's School of Visual Arts Master of Fine Arts design criticism program
The events are free and open to the public.
