Architect Cornelia Hodgson Will Give Lecture this Friday
(ELGIN, IL - February 18, 2010) Cornelia Hodgson will be the presenter at 4:30 p.m. this Friday, February 19, in the Herrick Chapel as next in a series of professionals taking part in the School of Art, Design and Architecture's Lecture and Exhibition Series. Hodgson leads Dorsky Hodgson Parrish Yue, a national architectural design, planning, interiors and environmental graphics practice based in Cleveland, Ohio, Washington DC and Fort Lauderdale, Fla. DHPY has built its reputation designing mixed-use environments for living, working, shopping and entertainment – creating a sense of place where people thrive.
Mark your calendars for the next lecture to be held on March 26, 4:30 p.m. in the Herrick Chapel, featuring Blair Satterfield and Marc Swackhamer of HouMinn Practice, which has offices located in Houston and Minneapolis. The lecture description notes, "HouMinn Practice is an award-winning and internationally published collaborative noted for its research and innovative design. HouMinn practice is the result of a decidedly non-practice and non-academic approach to research and design. Instead, it represents a third approach, one distinguished by three key characteristics that are typical to both a traditional design firm and a traditional university. These are: first, a slow, evolutionary approach to academic design and research; second, the involvement of interdisciplinary collaborators, and third, an investment in the act of making.
Judson's Lecture and Exhibition Series is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Ian Hoffman, lecture coordinator or Joseph Cory, gallery director.
