Thank you to everyone that came out to Chronicle Books for our first in-person event in two years!

David Payne (Image Options) and Kevin Burch (Gensler) facilitated a great conversation sharing their experiences with material successes and failures, shared lessons learned, looked at detail drawings and built project work, as well as engaged the fellow participants in an on-going Q&A.

In addition to a great designer talk, participants were able to interact and touch real prototypes and samples, many of them featured in the presentation!

We’d like to give a big thank you to Chronicle Books for being able to host us, Image Options for helping put the evening together, and our regional sponsor Nanolumens.

Lastly, thank you to our great emcees David and Kevin!

About this event

Welcome back, SEGD San Francisco!

Join us for our first in-person event in two years for a lively presentation and conversation considering materials best practices, from design intent through to fabrication. Discussion will be led by David Payne (Image Options) and Kevin Burch (Gensler).

We’ll talk about material successes (and failures!), share lessons learned, look at detail drawings and prototypes, and be inspired by what’s possible with the designer/fabricator relationship. Bring your questions! It’s always a great time for a Q&A.
