On Wednesday, January 8, 2014, Scott Marble speaks at the University of Calgary’s downtown campus at 6:30pm. Marble is a founding partner of Marble Fairbanks and a faculty member at the Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation. He is the Director of Integrated Design at the GSAPP and is currently Director of the Integrated Design Studios for the Columbia Building Intelligence Project.
The work of Marble Fairbanks is widely published internationally, has received numerous design awards and is part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). In 2008, the MoMA commissioned their project Flatform for the exhibition Home Delivery: Fabricating the Modern Dwelling.
Marble just completed editing a new book called Digital Workflows in Architecture: Design-Assembly-Industry that explores how the assimilation and synthesis of digital communications among architects, engineers, fabricators and builders is dramatically shifting how we work and our relationship to the tools we use.
Design Matters with Scott Marble will weave together his recent work around the theme of workflows as a practitioner, writer and teacher. It will include a presentation of projects by Marble Fairbanks, excerpts from his new book and a synopsis of his research project at Columbia University, the Columbia Building Intelligence Project.
The University of Calgary’s downtown campus is located at 906 8th Avenue SW. Admission is $10, and free for students.
