Learn to Design for Today’s Market at Design Institute
The 2008 NAHB/BALA Design Institute, held at the Green Valley Ranch Resort in Las Vegas on June 6-11, brings together builders and the industry’s top design professionals to explore the latest techniques and trends and see practical examples of design solutions for today’s market.
The design institute features learning through interactive design charettes, case studies and individualized breakout sessions.
This year’s sessions are designed to address the critical needs of builders and designers in today’s housing market:
- Lessons in Design: How to Design Yourself Out of This Economic Downturn — This session will teach creative and practical single-family residential design solutions that will help participants differentiate themselves from the competition.
- Interactive Design Charette — The charette gives builders the opportunity to participate in the design process from the earliest stages. Participants receive a market-specific program and are asked to create a single-family home design solution with the hands-on assistance of architects and interior designers.
- Product Design Solutions: Design Breakout Sessions — Award-winning architects and interior designers will teach design solutions for target markets, design appeal for specific buyers and how design elements can make the sale.
Featured speakers include Paul Campbell, AIA, president of KEPHART Community • Planning • Architecture; Heather McCune, director of marketing for Bassenian/Lagoni Architects; and Paul Deffenbaugh, editorial director of Professional Builder magazine.
