Dallas Architecture Forum presents Sheila Kennedy
The Dallas Architecture Forum continues its 2017-2018 lecture season with Sheila Kennedy, FAIA, founding Principal of Kennedy & Violich Architecture Ltd. (KVA) in Boston, Massachusetts, and Professor of the Practice of Architecture at MIT. Kennedy has established an internationally recognized new model for an interdisciplinary design practice that explores architecture, digital technology and emerging public needs. Designated as one of Fast Company’s Masters of Design, Kennedy is described as an “insightful and original thinker who is designing new ways of working, learning, leading and innovating”.
Kennedy is the creator of the MATx Portable Light Project, a non-profit global initiative that enables people in the developing world to create and own portable energy harvesting solar textile kits. It has been recognized with a 2012 Energy Globe Award, 2009 US Congressional Award, a 2009 Energy Globe Award and a 2008 Tech Museum Laureate Award for technology that benefits humanity.
This is the annual Rose Family Lecture, honoring Deedie and the late Rusty Rose, with underwriting support from the Dallas Center for Architecture Foundation.
