Clinton Cuddington of Measured Architecture will speak in Architecture and Design in M1040 at 6:15 pm on Oct 1

Monday, October 1, 2012 - 6:15pm - 9:00pm

"Measured Architecture began with the simple objective to create contemporary, environmentally sound buildings that are stimulating to occupy and grounded in their communities. For us, this means getting back to the basics of architectural practice, working in close collaboration with individual clients and craftspeople to design structures that stand up, keep out the elements and serve as backdrops for people’s lives.

Over the past five years we have demonstrated our commitment to deliver buildings that are socially, environmentally and culturally sustainable and have worked hard to drastically reduce the environmental footprint of every new building. We view each of our projects as an element within a larger ecological network and begin our design process with an interrogation of the strategic potential of siting, climate, massing, materials and program.

Our ability to craft high quality, high-value projects depends on our capacity to build and maintain collaborative relationships with all members of the project team. We work closely with consultants, contractors and trades to raise the bar of construction and environmental performance. From structural engineers to stone masons, each project is an exercise in exploration and collaboration. We believe this is the best way to deliver exceptional buildings to our clients.
