Award-Winning Architect to Lecture at LUMA
SCB’s Devon Patterson To Discuss Responsible Design in Architecture
The Loyola University Museum of Art (LUMA) welcomes Devon Patterson, principal of Solomon Cordwell Buenz (SCB), the design and architecture firm behind Loyola’s LEED certified, award-winning, and cutting edge Richard J. Klarchek Information Commons, for a lecture on developing a responsible relationship with the environment through architecture and design. Patterson’s lecture is a part of Loyola’s El Tracks lecture series.
The lecture coincides with LUMA’s Ecology.Design.Synergy exhibition, which is currently on display at the museum through May 17, 2009. The new exhibit, which reinterprets the term “sustainability” by examining how people inhabit their built environments, showcases the innovative design approach of the German architecture and design firms Behnisch Architekten and Transsolar ClimateEngineering, as illustrated by a roster of international projects and ongoing collaborations.
