Join us for a new hybrid approach to Forums. Partnering with Professional Development, we are offering an audio track in which you can listen to the designer and architect’s perspective while touring the space on your own time. A printed brochure or digital pdf with project photography will accompany the audio track for those who cannot make it to the space. This tour will highlight the Westwood Hills Nature Center, designed by HGA. From an architectural standpoint the building shape, form, and materials all reflect the goal of integrating sustainable thinking into the conceptual design.  CE credit is pending.

Note:   Please check Westwood Hills Nature Center website for details if the space is open to the public.  











Please contact for questions.
