On Friday, March 18, 2016 Studio Associate Professor of Architecture Paul Pettigrew will present his lecture titled,”Urban Wood’s Journey From Forest to Classroom, Museum, Gallery, Auction and Home” at McDonald’s Corporate Campus/Hamburger University, located at 2715 Jorie Blvd. in Oak Brook, Ill.
Since spring 2008 over 300 IIT Architecture students have studied urban wood’s potential importance to the architecture profession and building industry. Since spring 2008 100s of Illinois Tech student-designed furniture and functional design objects have been exhibited and published introducing urban wood’s potential to the general public. Their goal as architects, Illinois Tech students and university faculty these past eight years has been making visible urban wood’s potential once it leaves the urban forest.
