Healthy Architecture: the Impact of Design on Well-Being

UTRF presents its annual Break::the::Box lecture series, with the theme of “Healthy Architecture: the Impact of Design on Well-Being” focusing on a holistic approach to architecture in concert with Frank Lloyd Wright’s design methods. This program will explore concepts and theories by professionals examining the role architecture has in sustaining human well-being in relation to economic development, historic preservation techniques, nature-inspired design, and the modern live/work culture. Each event will include time for audience Q&A.

This series will be presented in-person with a live streamed option at a reduced price (live-streamed events will be recorded and available for viewing 72 hours after the event). All lectures are FREE for UTRF members! Not sure if you’re a UTRF member? Contact us to confirm or sign up to become a member HERE.
