Professor Russell’s lecture will focus on the continuing
need for students, instructors and practitioners, alike, to reassess how they
understand and apply Design Process. By recognizing the enormous value gained through the full application of Design
Process, students, instructors and practitioners, will find deeper meaning and
greater satisfaction from the results of their endeavors. In turn, these same
results will generate a new level of inspiration and completed projects that
respond, more fully, to the needs and desires of the client and to the critical
environmental and contextual demands of a given site.
