Governor’s Chair Seminar Series: Doug Voigt
October 23, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The Governor’s Chair Seminar Series is pleased to present “The Human Footprint” by Doug Voigt on Thursday, October 23, 2014. The event includes a reception at 6:00 p.m. with the lecture at 6:30 p.m. All activities will occur at 113 of the UT Art + Architecture Building, 1715 Volunteer Blvd.
Doug Voigt, Director of Urban Design and Planning at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP, is focused on a variety of urban design and transportation issues and has worked on complex downtown mixed-use projects, new city designs and large-scale architectural efforts. His work embodies a holistic approach to energy and urbanism and is inspired by the belief that dramatic economic and environmental benefits will come through the necessary transition from carbon-based power generation to renewable sources. Doug will present case studies from SOM’s global City Design Practice on sustainable models for high performance infrastructure and livable communities. Multi-disciplinary collaboration and research have led to the positioning of new ideas that transcend best practices, and this approach is the starting point for an open discussion about principles and design strategies for 21st century cities.
