Anna Marich will present “Designing for Diversity” during at the American Marketing Association’s High5 Conference in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Brodie Bain will present “Community and Place – Shared and Divergent Campus Planning Approaches” at the SCUP 2016 Pacific Regional Conference in Tempe, Arizona. The breadth of approaches available to campus planners given shared and unique conditions is important to understand in order to create plans specific to the culture of each campus. The session will look at two different plans to give you a sense of the range of issues and strategies available, along with processes that always apply, so planning approaches can be tailored to a campus's unique conditions.

Brodie Bain will present “Combining Active Learning, Robust Technology, and Design-Build” at the SCUP 2016 Pacific Regional Conference in Tempe, Arizona. Washington State University (WSU) used design-build for a new classroom building that offers a wide range of active learning spaces and ubiquitous digital tools to support many disciplines campus-wide. We will discuss how to effectively define a program-driven classroom project that must remain relevant, innovative, and serve multiple users. We will also discuss how to incorporate such a project into the design-build process, including who to engage and how to move forward with a schematic design process that must limit input during the competition phase.

Jim Huffman will speak on the topic of “How autonomous (self-driving) cars will affect the built environment” at the Professional Services Management Association Luncheon in Vancouver, British Columbia.

David Green will present “Grand Airport City Istanbul – airport cities, beyond logistics and business” at the Passenger Terminal Expo in Cologne, Germany. Airport cities have been increasing as a project type in past years. However, most of these projects are simply support areas for the transportation and cargo logistics of the airport. With the Grand Airport City in Istanbul, we are proposing a city that operates in all ways as a traditional city.
