Space.City presents El Dorado

Expanding Practice Fall Lecture Series
Expanding Practice, the title of Space.City's fall lecture series, concentrates on paradigms and people that are reclaiming and reshaping the practice of architecture. The individuals selected to lecture represent a variety of sizes of practices, yet each offer, in their own way, innovative approaches to the process and pursuit of design. Whether it be rethinking the traditional business model of architecture, challenging the boundaries of the discipline, or expanding the conceptual possibilities of architectural effect, all the lecturers will serve to inspire a renewed spirit of design.

The designing + making concept behind el dorado inc began in 1995, when architect Jamie Darnell began taking welding classes and four more of us (Doug Stockman, Dan Maginn, Chris Kelsey and David Murrell) decided to glom on to his blue collar glory. Our objective was to establish el dorado inc in the public eye as an architectural firm. And not just any architectural firm, but the Most Progressive and Innovative Architectural Firm in Kansas City.  We've been around for fourteen years now.  Think about itthat's a long time for a group of previously-independently-minded do-gooders to play nice, practice serious architecture and make well-made stuff together. We are preparing for the next fourteen by organizing our collaborative design studio to better reflect the diverse market segments in which we are most effective.  By segmenting our practice, our Commercial, Industrial, Civic/Institutional, Public Art and Residential Studios will each be able to effectively focus on those project types for our clients.  As we prepare for the next fourteen, we are united in our vision. We are rested and ready, primed to give our revitalized economy an enthusiastic and well-crafted bear hug.

He has taught at the University of California, Berkeley, Technical University in Dresden, Germany, Washington University in St. Louis, Lawrence Institute of Technology, University of Kansas and currently teaches at Kansas State University.
