Lee Lectures on Innovation, Meaning

October 20, 2015 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

No cost

Brian Lee, FAIA, Design Partner with the international architecture firm, Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, and a lead designer of the AMIE structure, will lecture on Tuesday, Oct. 20, 5:30 p.m.  The lecture will take place in McClung Museum, 1327 Circle Park Drive.

Lee’s lecture, Work—Innovation in Practice, will reflect on a practice and body of work that values innovation and multi-disciplinary collaboration to produce buildings and environments that address context, tectonics and shared meaning.

Lee uses a building’s aesthetics, program and geological structural features to provide meaning to those who live and work there.  His award-winning designs include the China World Trade Center in Beijing and University of California San Diego Telemedicine Education Building.

He also is a lead designer on AMIE (Additive Manufacturing and Integrated Energy), a system that demonstrates the integration of generating, using and storing electrical power by sharing energy between a building and a vehicle, both of which were built using the additive manufacturing process of 3D printing.  The AMIE prototype structure was designed by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill with collaboration from students and faculty from the UT College of Architecture and Design.  The structure and its companion vehicle were unveiled at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in September 2015.  Visit for details on AMIE.

Part of the college’s Robert B. Church Memorial Lecture Series, the Oct. 20 lecture is open to all, free of charge and offers continuing education units.  It will be streamed live here.
