Spring Lecture Series 2019
Architecture & Landscape
The University Architect / Campus Planning and Design Office sponsors a spring lecture series in architecture and landscape architecture. The purpose of the series is to bring together community enthusiasts, students and staff from across different disciplines to hear the latest innovations in building and design. The lectures provide the Bay Area architectural and design communities an opportunity to hear nationally and internationally renowned experts in the field. The lectures are free of charge and open to the public.
Theme: Architecture of Humanity
The theme of this year’s lecture series is “Architecture of Humanity”. We purposefully selected designers who believe Architecture has a much greater responsibility beyond aesthetics. This year’s speakers share the fundamental belief that Design has the power to enrich the world around us. They prioritize those projects with the potential for the greatest positive social impact, and strive to promote justice and human dignity. They believe in the power of humane and respectful environments to transform neighborhoods and elevate the lives of individuals and families. They employ a human-centered approach at all scales, deriving inspiration from the human experience rather than any fixed design dogma.
