Architecture to host energy-related workshop

March 20, 2013

Each year, the MSU School of Architecture and the Mississippi chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) host a CEU energy-related lecture/workshop open to students, professors, regional practitioners and other interested members of the community. This annual event, sponsored by Atmos Energy, consists of a structured workshop with two industry speakers.

This year’s workshop will be held on Thursday, April 11, from 8:30 a.m.-3 p.m., at the School of Architecture’s fifth-year program facilities in Jackson–the Stuart C. Irby Jr. Studios (509 East Capitol Street). The cost is $55 for AIA members and $95 for nonmembers; architecture students are admitted for free, and lunch is provided.

The program includes talks on “The Golden Age of Gas” and “Multi-Zone Gas Heat Pump Technology.” The featured topic will be a discussion on the conceptual and practical aspects of Solar PV and how an office can immediately start promoting and specifying this technology to affect immediate environmental change.

To register for the event or for more information, contact Joe Blake, executive director of AIA Mississippi, at 601-360-0082 or
