March 6, 2008, 2008 (GREENSBORO, NC) – Award-winning architect Frank Harmon, FAIA, of Raleigh will join other notable contributors to the built environment to address new “green” building technology’s impact on design and business during UNC-Greensboro’s 2008 Design, Art, and Technology Symposium on Friday, March 28.
The theme for this year’s three-day symposium (March 27-29) is “Between the Lines: Innovation In Art, Architecture and Design.” Harmon and the other members of his panel will address building “as a sustainable process which caries broader implications of social, environmental and economic responsibility,” according to Anna Marshall-Baker, moderator for the panel. The other panelists are: developer Dennis Quaintance of Quaintance-Weaver Restaurants & Hotels in Greensboro; green building systems engineering Isaac Panzarella of Consider Design in Raleigh; and John Meggs of Nature Neutral, a Charlottesville, VA, company that offers environmentally responsible building supplies.
“The intention of the design, arts, and technology symposium (dats) is to bring together communities, industries, and individuals in the Piedmont Triad to explore new and innovative approaches to design and technology,” said Marshall-Baker. “The objective is for the audience to see the interface of building technologies with design and business.”
Harmon’s panel discussion will take place from 2:30-3:30 in the Claxton Room of the Elliott University Center. Each panelist will introduce himself and his work, then the floor will be open for questions. For more information on the entire Symposium, visit http://www.dats.uncg.edu.
