About this course:

The Orange County Museum of Art is building a bold new home at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa, California. Join the project team from Morphosis and Clark Construction for a virtual look at the building-in-progress and a discussion of how the team works together to make the complex forms and an innovative ceramic façade a reality. Presentation by Morphosis Architects on overall design “Virtual Job Walk” by Clark Construction.

Learning objectives:

  • Analyze how the identity, requirements, and opportunities of a cultural institution are interpreted into built form.
  • Discuss the strategies and measures architects and contractors can use to ensure materials and custom details perform as designed.
  • Learn how complex facades can be rationalized for efficiency and effect.
  • Understand how architects and contractors are adapting to contingencies and pressures to maintain construction through the global pandemic.

NOTE: An attendance verification link will be provided at the end of the program. AIA members and those wanting a Certificate of Completion will need to fill out this form at the conclusion of the presentation. There will also be an opportunity to provide feedback on the presentation.
