The multi-award-winning architect will use his work to discuss architectural regionalism.
October 8, 2013 (Raleigh, NC) -- Frank Harmon, FAIA, principal of Frank Harmon Architect PA and a Professor In Practice at NC State University’s College of Design, has been asked to speak during the Clemson University School of Architecture’s centennial celebration and symposium in Clemson, SC, in October.
The centennial celebration is entitled “The Architecture of Regionalism in the Age of Globalization.” The symposium’s theme is "Southern Roots + Global Reach," which recognizes Clemson’s geography and regionalism, as well as its long tradition of transcending the limits of its geography and region.
Frank Harmon is a nationally recognized leader in modern, sustainable, regionally appropriate design, specializing in environmental education centers. Since 2007, he has also presented “Architects Discuss America’s New Regionalism” at national AIA conventions to standing-room-only crowds.
On Friday, October 18, Harmon and fellow architects Marlon Blackwell, FAIA, of Fayetteville, Arkansas, and Merrill Elam, FAIA, principal in the Atlanta, Georgia-based firm Mack Scogin Merrill Elam Architects, will each give 30-minute presentations on their work and the symposium’s theme. Harmon’s portion is entitled “Native Places.”
Clemson University’s architecture instruction began in 1913. For more information on the centennial and the symposium, go to http://www.clemson.edu/caah/architecture/celebration/symposium.
