1 CE hour

A Conversation with Duo Dickinson, FAIA and Barry Svigals, FAIA.

Barry Svigals, FAIA and Duo Dickinson, FAIA create buildings, and more. Art, words, the primal good of conceiving have been part of their day-to-day work for over 30 years. Join them to explore the challenge of building meaning, both natural and hard to do, and to love and question our joys and fears in generating what is around us.

Duo Dickinson FAIA, went to Cornell, partnered with Louis Mackall, and has had his own firm for 30 years. He has helped create hundreds of places to live and worked with over 100 not for profits to make things better. For Duo, making things has meant awards, teaching, talking, and writing. His many articles and public presentations have added to the public’s awareness of the value of architecture.

Artist, architect, writer and public speaker, Barry Svigals, FAIA is the founder of Svigals + Partners, an architecture and art firm, whose mission is to nurture and inspire prosperous, compassionate communities. He believes we are all creative and that capacity needs to find expression in living and working together. His love of sculpture and figurative art led to its integration into the architecture of his firm, bringing back an historical tradition and providing a dimension of deeper meaning.
