The Centerbrook Architects Lecture Series Presents Stephen Schreiber, FAIA, “Engaged Design”

November 29, 2012

Friday, December 7th at 7 p.m. at the Essex Town Hall

Stephen Schreiber is the Director of the new Architecture+Design Program at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. The program is an interdisciplinary, collaborative program that embraces spirited, socially progressive, and environmentally responsive design. He is a graduate of Old Saybrook High School, Dartmouth College (BA) and Harvard University (M.Arch) and the story hours at the Essex Library.

His talk, ‘Engaged Design’, will provide a window into the future of architecture and those who will be shaping our cities and towns. As in all professions, teachers of young architects endeavor to give their students the tools they need to flourish in their careers. As such, educators are in the front line of interpreting and predicting the future in order to train their students. Stephen will talk about the approaches that are being used to teach young architects how to contribute more effectively to communities now and in the coming years.
