College of Architecture, Planning and Design



May 4, 2015

Department Head Notes

Beginning today, you can take advantage of participating in final design reviews for IAPD studios. The range of projects throughout IAPD is fantastic and I can't wait to see each of the projects! See a schedule posted on the IAPD calendar outside of Seaton 203C. 

This week is also Safety Week, as brought to you by the IAPD Student Council - you will see a schedule of events in this newsletter - please participate and enjoy! The bottom line is that we want you to work hard, but also to be safe - in all respects.

We had a wonderful presentation from our Visiting Scholar Lin Li last week, as you can see from the photo below. Her presentation about the development of the Industrial Design profession in China was well-attended and truly enjoyable!
