Editor’s Note

Please join us next week on 02.13.14 at 6:00 PM for the opening of “Considering the Quake: Seismic Design on Edge.” Curated by Professor Ghyslaine McClure and Dr. Effie Bouras of the McGill University Department of Civil Engineering and Applied Mechanics, the exhibition explores the elegant, and oftentimes elusive, intersection between architectural design and the technicality of structural engineering. Envisioned as a “science center” for design, “Considering the Quake” will feature full-sized seismic technology, architectural and structural models, seismic testing videos, and even a shake table.

The exhibition will also be complimented by a series of programs organized by the AIANY Design for Risk and Reconstruction Committee and the AIANY. Check our online calendar for upcoming quake events!

In addition, don’t forget to submit your recommendations for the AIANY College of Fellows (deadline February 20, 5:00 PM) and the AIANY Nominating Committee (deadline February 28, 5:00 PM).
