Join us for Uncorked + On Topic, a series of faculty-led conversations on subjects of shared interest and expertise across FAA.
Thursday, April 14, 2016
5:15 p.m. in the Tryon Festival Theatre Foyer, KCPA
This month’s topic: MEGA
FAA’s Uncorked + On Topic series will conclude this year with an enlightening discussion on “Mega,” featuring Mary Pat McGuire and Marci Uihlein. These two faculty members regularly traverse the expanding range of scales at which design can impact human life. They will explore questions such as: How are architects of environments responding to the new capabilities, problems, and demands of planetary-scale design? What new challenges do mega-scale projects present in creating spaces that facilitate intimate engagement and personal connection?

Mary Pat McGuire, Department of Landscape Architecture
Marci Uihlein, School of Architecture

Moderator: Kevin Hamilton, Senior Associate Dean
