Event Date: Feb 22, 2018; Event City: Culver City, CA, US
Please join Cal Poly LA Metro on Thursday, February 22nd for a reception, lecture, and discussion with Jonathan Ward of NBBJ.
Architect Jonathan Ward has dramatically advanced building design and the experiences
they create, leading to unique and unexpected beauty. His body of work—which includes
projects for Samsung, Tencent, Microsoft, Alibaba, Reebok, Wellcome Trust, Telenor and
UCLA—challenges client expectations and uses a combination of research and intuition to
uncover compelling design solutions.
Jonathan has cultivated a learning-based design process. He views each design project as
an opportunity to develop a specific idea or point of view focused on generating a true sense
of community and connectivity.
Since 1996, Jonathan has worked within the framework of design practice NBBJ, where he
currently serves as global design partner. During his tenure at the firm, Jonathan has
evolved the practice into one built on a global network of experts with small creative design
workshops that deliver insightful, fresh and innovative buildings and experiences.
Founded in 1943, NBBJ has locations in Beijing, Boston, Columbus, Hong Kong, London,
Los Angeles, New York, Pune, San Francisco, Seattle and Shanghai. Our global network
of “renaissance teams” includes more than 700 researchers, strategists, nurses, architects,
anthropologists, planners and interior designers who generate ideas that have a profound
and lasting impact.
Introduced and moderated by Stephen Phillips, AIA, Ph.D., Principal of Stephen Phillips Architects (SPARCHS) and professor, director, Cal Poly LA Metro Program in Architecture and Urban Design (California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo).
In collaboration with the Helms Bakery District and the Cal Poly LA Metro Program in Architecture and Urban Design.
