AIARE Monthly Membership Meeting
Our speaker this month is Obie Bowman, FAIA, whose small firm's groundbreaking work at Sea Ranch lead the way for the sustainable design movement in California. Technology is enabling small regional firms to compete with large mega-offices and as a result, opening new options and creating exciting opportunities to connect to the native natural environment. Bowman sees places "designed as part of the landscape rather than as isolated objects placed down upon it. Inspired by site, informed by the client and mindful of the inhabitant, our work is a continual search to do things right."
* Identify new opportunities for 'reading' the landscape and using natural forces to enhance building design
* Discover the historic principals and future trends of nature sensitive design.
