Architecture + Landscape + Urban Design - Spring Lecture Series

Architecture + Landscape + Urban Design

 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.

Each lecture is valid for one hour of CEU Credit through AIA Silicon Valley.  Please add your name and AIA number during webinar registration, and we will submit the list of attendees to the AIA following each lecture to insure you receive credit.

Theme: The Architecture of Joy

In his book “The Architecture of Happiness”, Alain de Botton writes:

“It is perhaps when our lives are at their most problematic that we are likely to be most receptive to beautiful things.”

That point was proven in March 2020, when many of us began sheltering in place in an attempt to flatten the curve.  As we continue to emerge from this pandemic, let’s reflect together on the incredible value of architecture in our lives.  Our environment brings us joy, inspires us, and reminds us of our full potential – booth individually and as a community.  With that sentiment in mind, we invite you to sit back and relax, and enjoy the inspirational work of our talented speaker.
