Almost five years ago, Darius Sollohub collaborated with AIA New York on a seemingly small research project about young architectural professionals. That work has grown into a new book, Millennials in Architecture: Generations, Disruption and the Legacy of a Profession. Sollohub’s book situates the generation in relation to their predecessors, highlighting the social and environmental challenges we are currently facing and mapping the ways in which this newest generation of architects will likely force disruptions in how firms and educators teach and foster leadership. Participants will gain an understanding how the digitally savvy generation can leverage their skills in the context of design professions.
Speaker: Darius Sollohub, AIA, teaches at the Hillier College of Architecture and Design at NJIT. He has been affiliated with the university since 1995 and served as director of its School of Architecture. Sollohub teaches and consults on architecture and planning topics at multiple scales and his interest in design pedagogy is expressed in his book, Millennials in Architecture: Generations, Disruption and the Legacy of a Profession, recently published by the University of Texas Press. Sollohub has worked closely with many institutions and agencies and was awarded the 2010 NCARB Grand Prize for Creative Integration of Practice and Education.
Respondents: Diana Budds, Senior Story Producer, Curbed, is a New York–based writer interested in how design affects and reflects culture. She reports on architecture, urbanism, technology, and product design. She covered these topics and more while on staff at Fast Company and Dwell, and her work has appeared in Kinfolk and on Eye on Design and Vox.com.
Quinn Lammie, AIA, is an architect with Murphy Burnham and Buttrick Architects, in Manhattan, where his work currently focuses on large-scale renovation projects for institutional clients. His previous work has focused on socially conscious design efforts with both local and international non-profit organizations. He received a Master of Architecture from Rice University and an undergraduate degree in architecture from Georgia Tech. Quinn was a member of the 2018 AIANY Civic Leadership Program and currently serves as an advisor for the 2019 program.
