Our Alumni Lecture Series continues this Friday from 12-1 PM with our own Associate Director, David Jurca.

David’s interactive talk Opportunity or Constraint? will explore the creative process of shifting one’s perspective on a design problem to reveal the possibilities often hidden within. He will present practical lessons for designers gathered over eight years of professional practice and applied research at the CUDC. Employing several innovative projects as case studies, including the transformation of an underused parking garage into a lively public space, David will encourage urban makers to embrace constraints as a generative design force.

David is a 2006 graduate from the CUDC. As Associate Director of the CUDC he contributes to the full range of the practice’s projects, with a particular interest in shrinking cities research. Working with social media, video and other technologies, David spearheads the CUDC’s efforts to develop new techniques for community engagement. David teaches the graduate design studio, advises MUD capstone students and has led several community design charrettes.

All lectures are from 12-1 PM at the CUDC, 1309 Euclid Avenue, Suite 200, unless otherwise noted. Free and open to the public.
