Our February dinner meeting program will be a presentation by Adam Marcus, AIA. Adam is the Director of Variable Projects, an award-winning design and research office operating at the intersection of architecture, computation and fabrication.

Adam will speak about his work exploring how new technologies can interface with longstanding architectural traditions of craft, materiality, ornament and pattern. His practice incorporates a broad range of techniques; BIM, parametric modeling software, robotic fabrication and full-scale prototyping. Though Adam may count robots, 3-D printers and enormous data sets as a part of his design arsenal, he often returns to the rudimentary tool of the PENCIL.

Adam is an Associate Professor of Architecture at California College of the Arts, where he coordinates the Integrated Building Design curriculum, teaches design studios in computational design and digital fabrication, and collaborates with CCA's Digital Craft Lab. He is also a partner in Futures North, a public art collaborative dedicated to exploring the aesthetics of data.  http://www.variableprojects.com/profile/
