2017 Annual Fall Conference: Modern Maker
The 2017 Annual Fall Conference will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn, Missoula, MT.
Modern Maker: A skilled modern-day maker’s understanding of specific materials evokes simple, honest design which embody characteristics that respond to the properties of the material itself. Material-driven inspiration, experiment, exploration, and refinement affords an intimate knowledge which gives the creator the freedom to show restraint and push the limits of their media. Our industry has evolved from a master builder concept to one that is so fractured by liability, licensure, specialties, codes, materials, management, construction methods, trades, and time that discovering someone that truly designs AND builds is a rarity and something beautiful. We should all appreciate that concept of practice and the whimsy of study, discovery, and a construction-informed design process
