Kent Suhrbier to Present at Materiality Book Launch

Glen-Gery will celebrate the release of its latest publication with a panel discussion on the potential of architectural shapes and masonry details in contemporary university architecture.

We’re excited to have ANSYS Hall and TCS Hall at Carnegie Mellon University featured in the latest edition of Materiality, an acclaimed publication exploring the use and application of brick across a wide variety of projects. Materiality: Brick in Contemporary University Architecture showcases how leading architects incorporate bricks into transformative environments on campus and in communities across the United States.

On April 18th, renowned brick manufacturer Glen-Gery will host a launch event and panel discussion at its New York design studio. “Shapes to the X Degree,” moderated by Morris Adjmi, Founder and Principal at Morris Adjmi Architects, will explore how select projects featured in the book achieve unique architectural shapes and details through masonry. Kent Suhrbier, FAIA, Principal in our Pittsburgh studio, will discuss our recent work at Carnegie Mellon University, along with additional case studies from Stanley Saitowitz (Stanley Saitowitz | Natoma Architects), Gregory Hoss, AIA (David M. Schwarz Architects), Ben Widger, AIA (Kennedy & Violich Architecture), Diego Samuel (HDR), and Arthur Chang, AIA (NADAAA). Attendees will learn from each speaker about their experience applying intricate brickwork to complex designs and adapting to an existing campus or community context.
