ASHRAE Invites AIA Members to March 6 Luncheon
ASHRAE Central Oklahoma has invited AIA Central Oklahoma members to join them for their March meeting. Join them to hear about "Designing for Architecture" at their new lunch venue at Francis Tuttle's PORTLAND Campus.
March 6, 2019
11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
Francis Tuttle - Portland Campus, Bruce Gray Center Building
3500 NW 150th St
Oklahoma City, OK 73134
The guest speaker will be Madison Schultz and she will be discussing "Designing for Architecture". The topic will cover creating beautiful spaces and exquisite built environments which is what drives many architects. At times, striving for aesthetics leaves the architect at odds with their engineers who are far more likely to value function over form. "Designing for Architecture" will help engineers explore creative solutions to help balance form versus function. With case studies and a workshop approach, engineers and architects will learn how to design more beautiful mechanical systems.
