Join us on Thursday, November 5th for Best Practice, a virtual fireside chat series dedicated to practice operations at architecture firms and beyond. From pain points to potential, hear how leaders in the architecture and engineering industry are innovating through new business models and managerial techniques.
We’re chatting with Luisa Mendez. Luisa is a Senior Associate at SHoP. She led the design and coordination of the Fulbright University Masterplan and campus design for Vietnam’s first independent, not-for-profit institution of higher education. Luisa led the design of 475 W 18 ST – a high-rise condominium project with a mass-timber structure, the east-coast winning entry for the USDA-sponsored Tall Wood Competition prize. She also led the design and execution for Design Miami 2016, a pair of pavilions showcasing novel 3D-printing techniques from Oak Ridge National Lab & Branch Technology, considered at the time to be the largest 3D-printed objects ever produced. Luisa received her Master of Architecture from Columbia University GSAPP (2012) and her Bachelor Degree in Design from the University of Florida in Gainesville (2008).
In this 45 minute chat, we'll talk to Luisa about lessons learned across large projects and leadership within remote teams.
- What does optimized project management look like?
- How to develop a personal leadership style within an architecture firm?
- What tools can facilitate remote collaboration?
