Centerbrook Architects Lecture Series Presents: Robert Miller, FAIA with “Solace from Home: Sheltering in a Bohlin Cywinski Jackson Residence”

November 6, 2020 @ 7:00 pm


For many of us, the present moment has meant expanded time at home. Although disruptive and challenging, this has also been a time of opportunity – to engage with our dwellings in new ways, and to seek comfort, support and even inspiration in uncertain times. Join this Essex Library virtual program with Bohlin Cywinski Jackson Principal Robert Miller on Friday, November 6 at 7 pm for a conversation on the firm’s residential work and the ways its clients have adapted to a new normal at home. From the mountains of British Columbia to the remote lakes of Ontario, or self-sufficient urban agriculture in Hawaii to a self-built studio on the peninsula of Point Roberts WA, BCJ’s award-winning residences celebrate a sense of place, context, ecological sensitivity, and innovative use of materials. Through a series of case studies, the discussion will explore the firm’s holistic design approach and what it means to find solace from home today.

Robert E Miller FAIA pioneered Bohlin Cywinski Jackson’s Seattle office over 30 years ago. His lifelong interests in social issues, alternative construction, renewable energy, and industrial design are reflected in his holistic approach to architecture, ranging broadly in scale from modest cabins to the firm’s first high-rise towers. His work has been recognized with over 150 national and international awards and has been widely published. Robert routinely shares his expertise through lectures, university reviews and serving on design award juries nationally and internationally.

This Zoom event is free and open to the public. Registration is required. For more information please call the Essex Library at 860-767-1560 or see www.youressexlibrary.org
