Patrick Burke, AIA, principal and studio head at Michael Graves Architecture & Design, has been invited give a lecture and participate in a panel discussion at The New York School of Interior Design’s first annual symposium on the state — and the future — of interior design. Sponsored by the New York School of Interior Design, “Interior Design: The Essential Profession,” will be a full day of presentations and discussions highlighting the ways in which interior design functions in today’s dynamic global environment, and the contributions of interior design to public health, hospitality, urban environments and the contemporary interdisciplinary collaboration.
Mr. Burke’s lecture, entitled “Empathy and Interior Design” will share MGA&D’s Holistic Perspective™ design approach that leverages the firm’s knowledge of how people live, work and play to create enduring, deeply human interior design solutions at all scales. Mr. Burke will share examples of the firm’s work in healthcare, hospitality and product design to illustrate the fundamentals of the Holistic Perspective™ process and showcase concepts exploring the future of empathetic interior design.
The event is scheduled for October 7th and is part of NYSID’s Centennial Celebration. Click here to learn more about the program and upcoming events.
Since joining the firm in 1982, Mr. Burke has been the lead designer for projects ranging from healthcare facilities to master plans for eco-sensitive resort developments-all designs that uniquely reflect both the identity and cultural character of the client and of the local context.
