Architecture professor to speak at upcoming Taubman College symposium

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Shadi Nazarian, associate professor of architecture and a researcher with the Stuckeman Center for Computing Design, will participate in a symposium titled “From Lab to Site: Innovations in Concrete” at the University of Michigan on Nov. 1.

She will pair up with Michael Fiske of Jacobs Space Explorations Group to present “Transference of Additive Automated Construction Innovation to The Building Industry: Advancing Construction Technology for Sustainable Housing Solutions for Earth and Beyond.”

Co-organized by the Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning and the College of Civil and Environmental Engineering, the event brings together researchers and industry experts from disciplinary fields and areas of production – such as history and theory, engineering, construction technology, material science, design and manufacturing – for a discussion on concrete as a building material with enormous potential for innovation. The symposium “...aims to foster and identify trajectories for advancing concrete research and align potential collaborative exchanges."

Those interested can livestream the event through the symposium website.
