Cal Poly LA Metro Program Welcomes Architect Jonathan Ward to the Helms Design Center
February 22, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
On Thursday, February 22nd from 6:30 to 8:30 pm, please join us for a presentation and discussion with moderator Stephen Phillips and architect, Jonathan Ward of NBBJ, in collaboration with the Cal Poly LA Metro Program in Architecture and Urban Design. This event is free and open to the public.
Architect Jonathan Ward has dramatically advanced building design and the experiences they create, leading to unique and unexpected beauty. His body of work – which includes projects for Samsung, Tencent, Microsoft, Alibaba, Reebok, Wellcome Trust, Telenor and UCLA — challenges client expectations and uses a combination of research and intuition to uncover compelling design solutions.
Jonathan has cultivated a learning-based design process. He views each design project as an opportunity to develop a specific idea or point of view focused on generating a true sense of community and connectivity. Since 1996, Jonathan has worked within the framework of design practice NBBJ, where he currently serves as global design partner. During his tenure at the firm, Jonathan has evolved the practice into one built on a global network of experts with small creative design workshops that deliver insightful, fresh and innovative buildings and experiences.
Free Parking is available on the Helms Bakery campus located at Venice Boulevard and Helms Avenue.
