The international group of designers consisting of planner Robert Freestone, architect Heinz Tesar, and design Consultant David Lanthrop will address issues in sustainability, modern architecture, and the effects of social technologies on business, creativity and education respectively to an audience of students, faculty and the public.
"I''d love people, particularly young people, to bring their expanding view of how they engage with others in the process of ''work'' for students, thats learning of course to the discussion of the meaning of buildings," Lanthrop, the director of research and strategy at a Michigan industrial design company, tells the UF homepage.
Freestone will present two unique lectures on sustainability in modern planning spanning heritage preservation and metropolitan restructuring.
The free lectures run from October 21-23 at the Harn Museum of Art Auditorium and Norman Hall, both located on the UF campus.
