Keith Swenson, president of ModularDesign+ will speak at AIA New York’s upcoming Prefabrication in Practice discussion on May 8 at the Center for Architecture in New York City. Those interested in attending can learn on the chapter website.
Recognizing the growing emergence and importance of prefabrication and modular design, the AIA New York Chapter is hosting this event to education designers, building owners and more about the values. Below is the full abstract for the event.
Prefabrication in Practice
The integration of design and construction of modular principals and prefabricated processes into the built environment has a long history, filled with successes as well as missed opportunities and setbacks. The AIANY Professional Practice Committee’s mission to demystify what typically obscures the practice of architecture and to address issues common to architectural practice in New York City affords the opportunity to review and discuss the state of the art in modular and prefabrication construction as related to the urban environment. Through dialogue and research, we seek to illuminate and share the best practices of the profession; benefiting our member firms while nurturing the next generation of professionals. Join us for this roundtable discussion with three prominent members of the AEC community involved with modular and prefabrication design and construction. The evening will consist of presentations by the guests followed by a roundtable question and answer session.
