Function: Webinar to Discuss Growing Trend of Humanitarianism In Architecture
ATLANTA, July 8 /PRNewswire/ — Function:, an integrated marketing agency that specializes in connecting building product manufacturers (BPMs) to architects, contractors and facility managers, will host a complimentary webinar, “Design with Conscience: Humanitarianism in Architecture” on July 15, 2010, at 2:00 PM EDT. Featuring a varied panel of experts including a distinguished editor and dedicated industry specialists, the webinar will focus on the burgeoning practice of “humanitarian design” and its effect on the industry.
“Function: has seen design focus continue to shift from the elaborate to the purposeful. We’ve seen sustainability grow to include a responsibility not only to the environment but toward humanity as a whole,” said Dana Castle, Function:’s Principal and Director of Strategy. “Humanitarian design in architecture has been around for many, many years but has been overlooked or less publicized. Through this webinar we hope to continue to shed light on this important industry movement and on this advance toward social responsibility in architecture.”
Throughout the webinar panelists will examine the evolution of sustainability, what drives humanitarian projects, the process behind product specification and integration and more. Conversation will benefit architects, designers, marketers and BPMs in helping them understand where this movement is headed and how they can effectively communicate their projects and products. Manufacturers can be thought, and action leaders in humanitarian design by providing product education for architects and designers and explaining how products can be used in humanitarian design.
Featured panelists include:
Barb Alvarado, Director of Development, Architecture for Humanity
Susan Szenasy, Editor in Chief, Metropolis
Dana Castle, Principal and Director of Strategy, Function:
