In this 60-minute course, filmed live at the AIA California Council's 2013 Monterey Design Conference, Marlon Blackwell, FAIA, discusses how, working outside the architectural mainstream, his architecture and design process is based in design strategies that draw upon vernaculars and building typologies, the contradictions of place, and strategies that seek to transgress conventional boundaries for architecture. Marlon illustrates how ideas and actions are generated from careful observations of intersections of nature-made and culture-made conditions particular to an architectural situation. Marlon demonstrates that a resilient architecture can be achieved as an interplay between details, form and place. He also illustrates the necessity of being responsive to environmental factors, the specificities of site and sustainable design principles, all of which provides clients an architecture that can be felt as much as it is understood, as immediate and tactile as it is legible, and contributing to the fundamental civic dignity of communities.

This course is presented in high definition video and is available on computers, smart phones, tablets and other mobile devices.
