An Architectural Lecture Featuring the work of Zena Howard
May 6, 1:00-3:00PM
El Camino college

Zena Howard, AIA, LEED AP was the point person for the Smithsonian Institution in executing the design and construction of the nearly 400,000-square-foot 10 level National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) which happens to be the most sustainable national museum ever built, and the greenest of all Smithsonian Institution buildings. As Senior Project Manager for the NMAAHC, Ms. Howard managed the Freelon Adjaye Bond/Smith Group team of four architecture firms and 29 consultants throughout pre-design, design, construction documentation, and fast-track construction.

See and hear an in depth presentation about the concepts behind the design and construction of one of the United States most recent iconic buildings. Ms. Howard will accentuate her specialized architectural design goals such as environmental stewardship, historically-significant building preservation, and community economic development. She will share the works of past projects as well as projects in design such as the new museum for Motown Records.
