Alumni Lecture Series | Claire Markwardt & Neil Reindel

clairelecture2014 Entry: Proposed Market and Mixed Use Development along the newly day lit French Lick Tributary.

We only have a few lectures left in our Alumni Lecture Series, and this week features recent graduates Claire Markwardt & Neil Reindel. Their talk, ULI Competition: Tips, Tricks, Trials and Tribulations, will focus on their experiences competing in the 2013 + 2014 ULI Gerald D. Hines Competitions.

Join us on Friday, from 12-1 pm, to learn tips and tricks for completing competitive entries while overcoming various trials and tribulations through the two week process. Ultimately, this presentation hopes to reveal the value of competitive design thinking, its importance as an integral part of the academic experience, and why it has continued to be an asset and continuing endeavor after graduation.
