Justin Brown, class of 2002, is slated to visit the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, College of Architecture and Design next Monday at 5:45 p.m. to discuss his exhibit, "Bookmatch or Slipmatch," which will be on display from February 20 - March 09 in Gallery 103 of the Art + Architecture Building.
The exhibition will feature handcrafted products that demonstrate Brown, and his collaborative partner, Brian Green's dedication to woodworking, handcrafted design, and use of natural materials.
Brown's visit from Birmingham, Alabama, where he and Green have a product design company, offers students, faculty, and visitors insights into his firm's processes for the design and manufacture of useful, everyday objects, and furniture. Examples of the duo's work may be seen at http://brownandgreen.us.
"Bookmatch or Slipmatch" is a part of the Spring 2011-12 Robert B. Church III Memorial Lecture Series, an annual event that presents notable practitioners, from around the globe, who offer unique perspectives found in contemporary architecture and design practice.
