DESIGN AWARDS - SNACKS - CHAMPAGNE - THE PERFECT MATCH! CHEERS! This year’s student and professional design awards will knock your socks off. Celebrate these talented designers and their projects with decadent champagne snack pairings and toast to all their hard work.


FEED YOUR MIND AND BODY Didn’t make last year’s Fall into Design lunch CEU. This year is not to be missed! Back by popular demand…SCOTT Montemerlo from Teknion will be presenting Feeling Good to Feeling WELL. Sit back, relax, learn and “Feed Your Mind and Body” with comfort foods artfully prepared with local ingredients by Old Daley.


DESCRIPTION: Historically, there have been various ways to measure how an interior space “works.” The metric may be sq. ft./person or cost/sq. ft. Such determinants have a rightful place among the principles of design, but it is possible to reconcile economic necessities with design that is intelligent, interesting and human-centered. This session outlines how the essential components of design intersect with the principle components of the WELL Building Standard to create spaces that promote psychological well-being; resulting in more engaged, inspired, and empowered workers that exhibit a higher level of creativity and innovation.

2:45PM - 3:45PM SPECIALTY ARCHITECTURAL TOUR

• DESCRIPTION: Erected on the corner of State and Second Street in July of 1871, The Troy Music Hall was designed by George B. Post in his favored Beaux Arts and French Renaissance styles. The dominating six story structure at 106 feet long, 69 feet wide and 61 feet high has been home to banking offices, an insurance company and a bus terminal, most importantly the Music Hall. Adorned in granite, iron staircases and intricate frescos, the interior of the music hall is also home to the Nation’s largest nineteenth-century organ still in original condition. Built and installed within the home of millionaire William Belden, the organ was purchase and relocated to the Troy Savings Bank, apart from routine maintenance, the organ has remained untouched since its installation in 1890. Many aspects of the Music Hall have not been modernized, including the main chandelier still raised and lowered by a hand crank. Join our private tour of this remarkable structure and learn about its architecture, impressive acoustics and the astounding organ!
