CEO/President L. William Zahner will speak at the Exhibit Columbus Biennial in Columbus, Indiana, as part of the Architecture + Industry in the Future of → Cities Symposium. The Oct. 1 symposium is a rare opportunity to hear global leaders discuss how technology is changing architecture. This symposium is presented by Ball State University College of Architecture and Planning, and this session, Architecture + Industry in the Future of → Cities is presented by Noblitt Fabricating, Archinect, and Bustler.
Architecture + Industry in the Future of → Cities takes place at the First Christian Church at 531 5th St., designed by architect Eliel Saarinen and his son, Eero Saarinen, with interior work by Charles Eames. It opened in 1942 as one of the first modern churches in the United States. The geometric design is one of direct simplicity: A large stone cross accents the limestone façade. To the west stands the 166-foot high campanile, or free-standing bell tower.
Mr. Zahner will join global leaders Mark Burry, of Melbourne School of Design, Jennifer Rumsey of Cummins, Inc., Fabio Gramazio of Gramazio & Kohler, and William Kreysler of Kreysler & Associates. The group session is chaired by Kevin Klinger of Ball State University.
Exhibit Columbus is a biennial exploration of architecture, art, design, and community in Columbus, Indiana. It seeks to honor Columbus’ design heritage and to spark new enthusiasm for design by creating projects that will enrich the community for years to come.
