On May 28, the Structural Engineers Foundation of Washington (SEFW) will host Behind-the-Scenes Stories of Washington State’s Latest Generation of Unusual Buildings, an educational forum at the Davenport Hotel. SEFW has successfully executed two Forums in the Seattle area, and is excited to bring the efforts to Eastern Washington.
The Forum will be presented by Jon Magnusson, P.E., S.E, Hon. AIA, Senior Principal at Magnusson Klemencic Associates of Seattle. Behind-the-Scenes Stories of Washington State’s Latest Generation of Unusual Buildings will highlight the history, politics, architecture, engineering, and construction of iconic Washington projects, including the NFL and MLB stadiums, Seattle Central Library, Experience Music Project, a well-known project in Spokane, and others.
The Forum will not be an “engineering” lecture and is intended for anyone with a broad range of interest in the built environment. It is anticipated that many audiences will find the lecture worthwhile, such as owners, developers, architects, contractors, engineers, students, media representatives, and the general public.
Details of the Forum are as follows:
- May 28, 2013
Davenport Hotel, Isabella Room
Pre-function reception, 5 PM; Lecture, 6 PM
Free to the public
Capacity is limited
Registration is required at www.sefw.org
Jon Magnusson gave a similar presentation at the SEFW 2011 Fall Forum in Seattle and more than 450 people attended the event.
