Presented by Burt Marzley, AIA, Partner – Lead Designer at SoL Harris/Day Architecture, the following learning objectives will be met: 


  • Workplace Design: Participants will be able to observe and experience workplace design that encourages collaboration while still providing focused work areas (finding balance between openness, collaborative environments, small group areas, and focused work space).
  • The Building as a Showcase: Participants will be able to observe and experience the re-purposing of an existing structure to display products and the clients work. 
  • Glass and Glazing Systems: Participants will be able to observe design possibilities of glass and glazing systems, experience how they function and learn how they can be integrated in a minimal sense.
  • Experiential Design: Participants will be able to view strategies in experiential design.  Millennial’s want more and employers looking toward the future know this.  Participants will be able to see some simple strategies used to create an environment that improves the employees experience while attracting young talent.
    Presentation, 1 LU
