Big Lick Brewing Company
AIA Blue Ridge invites you to attend our annual meeting at Big Lick Brewing Company in Downtown Roanoke. In addition to food, drink, and conversation, we are excited to feature short presentations from local artists and designers on the subject of “Craft + Design.” (1 CEU)
Matt Wagner is the Principal at Matthew Wagner Design Consulting (MWDC), an architectural design, research, and consulting firm. He will discuss his current research into reactive surfaces which operate at the intersection of digital craft and human experience.
James Ruhland is an architect with Balzer and Associates and a skilled artist. He will discuss the ways that his drawing practice informs and inspires his architectural design pursuits, and perhaps share some tips and tricks for us to try out ourselves.
Professors Kay Edge and Edward Becker will share their recently completed student-led project to design and build a train observation platform in Radford. The project won a 2018 AIA Blue Ridge Design + Honor Award and features innovative use of Cross Laminated Timber construction.
