Architecture is all around us. It goes well beyond mere shelter. It is a record of our history. It speaks to our aspirations and culture. It can be uplifting and inspirational in the pursuit of beauty and meaning. It makes use of the technology of its time and seeks to advance it. It expresses our relationship with nature and the use of environmental resources. Architecture can ennoble our lives.

John C. Guenther, FAIA, LEED AP, will present an introduction and overview of architecture, offering an appreciation for the qualities of great architecture, as well as the design process used by architects.
