Oculus Book Talk: Millennials in Architecture
December 17, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
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 of how the digitally savvy generation can leverage their skills in the context of design professions.
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.
