Weber Thompson is at the AIA National Convention in Las Vegas this week, and Director of Sustainability, Myer Harrell, will be part of a panel discussion, “Discovering the Rosetta Stone: Translating Research for Design Decision-Making.”
About the session:
Many firms struggle to incorporate research into practice. Common barriers include staff time, firm structures, and the culture around non-traditional work. On top of it all, applying research findings to design projects can prove daunting without a roadmap.
Meet “Rosetta Stone”, a multifaceted tool that equips architects with actionable insight and guidance. It’s the first output of a new university/professional practice partnership among 11 leading design firms.
Hear how the partnership’s members—in only their first year—are paving the way for research in practice.
- Increase your literacy of research findings and their application to design decision-thinking.
- Learn about emerging tools that leverage research findings in client goal-setting, and gain actionable guidance for healthier buildings.
- Acquire valuable lessons from research on occupant-centric environmental psychology in the built environment.
- Discover replicable models for architecture firms to engage with academics for translation and dissemination of research critical to practice areas.
