WeMeet #7: Intro to Architecture

Logo_WeMeet Time: August 15, 2013 (Thur) 7:00 – 8:30 PM
Location:
ARC
5 Cambridge Center
Cambridge, MA 02142

Speaker: Ben Wang, AIA, Principal at Architectural Resources Cambridge

Moderator: Ming-Jen Hsueh, Landscape Architect at Sasaki Associates

Moderator: Zor Lee, Architect at NBBJ

Host: Ellen Kuo, Structural Engineer at SMMA

A building creates an identity in the surrounding environment and represents the vision of its owner and designers. Architects-they transform occupancy needs into conceptual design incorporating all elements and details; coordinate with engineers and designers to issue construction documents complying to codes and regulations; and work with the construction team to erect building structure meeting budget, deadlines and quality standards. The primary role of architects in a project is to act as a leader to coordinate with all disciplines to design and issue documents in a holistic approach. Encompassing all aspects of a project into consideration, architects study building’s functionality and durability, while at the same, integrate aesthetic appeal.

Ben Wang, Principal at Architectural Resources Cambridge, will show you what architects do other than cad drafting and scale-model building. Graduated from Harvard Graduate School of Design in 1976, he has almost 40 years of experience in architecture and is an active member of both American Institute of Architects and Boston Society of Architects. Ben will give us a tour of ARC, share his background and experiences, and present his on-going project- NMR Thai Buddhist Temple in Raynham, MA. To learn more about history, art and key elements of architecture, please join us on Thursday, August 15th. Please visit the Facebook event page https://www.facebook.com/events/1406398866240205/ and RSVP via https://wemeet7.eventbrite.com/ to be on the guest list.
