    Dory Hitti is a successful Lebanese designer whose modernist work is subtle, simple, and elegant. He brings interior design and culture together through a composition of mass, void, furniture, and connecting spaces, enhanced by his clever use of color and form. Beirut architect and writer Victor Khoueiry will describe the role of "Le Cercle Hitti" and other premier designers in Lebanon.

    BERNARD MAYBECK: VISIONARY ARCHITECT

    Bernard Maybeck is one of the most beloved of 20th century American architects. And Sally Woodbridge is one of his best known biographers. She writes about the excitement in California's Arts and Crafts movement, in which he played prominently: "Enclaves of artists and artisans ... felt the exhilaration of charting a fresh aesthetic course that touched life as well as art." Through her eyes, we'll examine the construction of Maybeck's rustic Boke house of 1902 and learn why his popularity endures.

Architect Jeff Stouffer of HKS Inc. will describe some low-stress environments that accelerate healing.
