On Wednesday, November 16, 2016 Founder & Chairman David M. Schwarz will present Precedent: Its Importance & Its Practice, to the University of Colorado-Denver Center for Advanced Research in Traditional Architecture (CARTA) as the inaugural Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Lecture.
Precedent has long been integral to architecture. In days past, it was based in history, that which has come before. Not so much today. Precedent, as architecture itself, has found its origins in odd and different places. This talk strives to understand precedent in the architecture of today as well as its incorporation into the work of David M. Schwarz Architects.
Mr. Schwarz received his B.A. at St. John’s College in Annapolis, MD, and Master of Architecture at Yale University. He currently serves as a jury member of the Richard H. Driehaus Prize of the University of Notre Dame School of Architecture. Additionally, he serves as the Jury Chairman for the Vincent J. Scully Prize Fund Endowment of the National Building Museum.
The event will take place in The Martin Room at History Colorado beginning at 6:00pm. For more information and to RSVP, please contact Christine Franck, Director of CARTA, College of Architecture & Planning, UC-Denver, at christine.franck[at]ucdenver.edu.
