Designers examine future industry trends in a live Google+ Hangout on Air event October 9
Columbia, Md. (Oct. 1, 2014) – Nemetschek Vectorworks, Inc., a provider of intuitive, powerful and practical 2D/3D and Building Information Modeling (BIM) software solutions, invites professionals and students from any design discipline to attend The Business of Creativity, an online, interactive panel discussion that will connect the dots between vision and reality. The event will take place on October 9, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. EDT through a Google+ Hangout on Air.
“Great design begins with ideas that run against the grain, shake the status quo and lead to unexpected and inspiring solutions,” said Steve Alden, AIA, architect at Nemetschek Vectorworks. “But it takes a keen awareness of emerging market trends and an ability to steer one’s creative workflows and perspectives in just the right way to improve and transform the world. The Business of Creativity will address these topics and more, sharing what some of today’s award-winning designers and industry professionals think about the future of technology and design, as well as how they stay ahead of the competition.”
Panelists include Todd McCurdy, FASLA vice president, director of landscape architecture + planning at Morris Architects, Inc., Aurora Meneghello, marketing and social media manager at Novedge, Michael Klaers, lighting designer at The Small Group, Ron Kwaske, principal and architect at Office Ron Kwaske, Architect and Rob Glisson, AIA, principal and architect at Rojo Architecture.
“The hangout will be a forum to stimulate ideas that should, in turn, lead to best practices that we can then implement, so I am excited to have the opportunity to be an active participant in such a dialogue,” said Kwaske. “By contributing as a panelist, I can open up that dialogue with my colleagues during the event, and hopefully with members of the audience during the Q&A session, so we can all learn and advance our understanding and use of technology in our firms.”
