Interior Design Symposium to Explore Future of Designed Environments

Published: Mar 26, 2012

LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 26, 2012) − The University of Kentucky College of Design will celebrate the School of Interior Design’s 40th anniversary with the symposium, "40+ Rethinking Design." The free public symposium will be presented March 29 and 30, at the Center Theater, located in the UK Student Center.

 

"Throughout its history the School of Interior Design at the University of Kentucky has been at the forefront in delivering a professional degree and producing graduates who are responsive to the changing needs of the design industries. Our graduates are excelling in diverse fields of practice ranging from health care to product design," says Ann Dickson, director of the UK School of Interior Design. "The School of Interior Design’s increasingly global perspective touches all realms of study. This symposium is essential to understanding the needs of future populations and how design practices will address these challenges."

 

Dickson adds, "This symposium not only marks and celebrates our past, but is also the foundation upon which the School of Interior Design moves into the future."

 

The interior design symposium speakers will focus on the future of designed environments, giving special attention to the human experience in respect to natural resources, other people, and the processes that impact the interactions we have with our surroundings. The speakers, in order of scheduled appearance, are Prataap Patrose, director of Boston’s Urban Design Department; Robin Guenther, principal at Perkins+Will; Cindy Coleman, strategic planner at Gensler; Chris Collins, CEO and founder of Tipodean Technologies. For a detailed itinerary please visit www.uky.edu/design/40+.

 

Prataap Patrose has been with the Boston Redevelopment Authority for 27 years. For the last eight years, Patrose has served as the director of the Urban Design Department, where he conducts the design review of projects of all scales and sizes in the city of Boston, and carries out urban design studies for a wide variety of large scale urban planning initiatives downtown and in the neighborhoods. Patrose will speak at 8:30 a.m. Thursday, March 29.

 

Robin Guenther is a principal at Perkins+Will in New York and an expert in green health care design. Guenther was the first architect to receive the Changemaker Award from the Center for Health Design for her efforts in improving and supporting the environment. Named by Interiors & Sources magazine a "Champion of the Environment," she works with a range of nonprofit organizations focused on sustainable design practices in health care. Guenther’s book, "Sustainable Healthcare Architecture," was released in 2008. Guenther will speak at 10:30 a.m. Thursday, March 29.

 

Cindy Coleman is a strategic planner at Gensler in Chicago, where she works with client’s organizational goals to create a well-informed design response. Coleman has published several books including, "Interior Design Handbook of Professional Practice" and most recently "The Designer’s Guide to Doing Research." Coleman holds a faculty position in the Department of Architecture and Interior Architecture at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. In 2010, she was named a Design Future Council Senior Fellow. Coleman will speak at 8:30 a.m. Friday, March 30.

 

Chris Collins is the CEO and founder of Tipodean Technologies in San Francisco, a company focused on virtual technologies. Prior to founding Tipodean, Collins worked at Linden Lab (creator of Second Life), where he co-started the enterprise team. Through his work the company successfully integrated Second Life into Fortune 100 companies, the U.S. military and a number of major universities and educational institutions. Prior to founding the enterprise team, Collins ran the Second Life Linden dollar Exchange (LindeX) and built several of the economic indicators. Collins will speak at 10:30 a.m. Friday, March 30.

 

Each of these four lectures will feature a local response panel and audience question and answer session. Eileen Jones, principal at Perkins+Will and UK alumna, will moderate the panel discussion.
