Today rounds out Day 2 of Bryan Bell‘s Public Interest Design Institute training program at the University of Texas at Austin, with Michael Murphy of MASS Design Group, Maurice Cox of the University of Virginia, Katie Swenson of Enterprise Community Partners, and former Rose Fellow Jamie Blosser of the Sustainable Native Communities Collaborative taking the podium. The two-day affair will culminate with what Bell calls the “SEED Certification Test,” when the 50+ participants will be examined on their familiarity with the principles and practice of the Social Economic Environmental Design Network.
This evening, Bell will kick off the 12th annual Structures for Inclusion conference, also being hosted by and at UT-Austin. Many of the speakers that partook in the above training program populate the conference roster, with several additions, including the likes of Emilie Taylor of the Tulane City Center, Coleman Coker of buildingstudio, and Gail Vittori of the Center for Maximum Potential Building Systems. But first, Bell will screen a cut of the first “SEEDoc,” profiled here previously. That video will hopefully be available online shortly, and we’re told that a live-stream of Structures for Inclusion may be as well. So stay tuned.
