Final Open Lectures of the Global Summer School Series

The Global Summer School Lecture Series finished this week with lectures by Enric Ruiz-Geli (pictured above), Andrew Payne (LIFT Architects) and Usman Haque (Pachube). Each of the lectures in the series was related to the technology or ideas that the students are applying to their final projects. The goal of the IAAC Open Lecture Series is open these discussions to the public and to share ideas.
