Distinguished Guest Lecture Series Welcomes Paul Hirzel on November 2

The second speaker in the 2015-2016 Distinguished Guest Lecture Series is Professor of Architecture Paul Hirzel. Funding for the lecture series is generously provided by the Tony Callison Memorial Fund.

Paul Hirzel’s professional practice experience has heralded regional, national, and international recognition for projects involving interior design, landscape design and building design. An advocate for the inclusion of the “outside condition” in the building design solution, he has developed innovative strategies for site analysis and design.

Hirzel will present “Disturbing Places (in Pullman): A Talk About the Seven Deadly Sins of Architecture and Landscape,” on Monday, November 2 at 5pm in Goertzen Hall 21.

The first speaker of the series was Paul Smead, HOK Houston, Design Director, Interiors, Ret. whose 40-year career includes international corporate, education and healthcare design. Projects always follow a rational and rigorous design approach but the human occupant with all of the inherent quirks is never forgotten. Smead presented “LISTEN + OBSERVE + EMPATHY + INTUITION: THE DESIGN EQUATION” on Monday, October 19 at 5pm in Goertzen Hall 21.
