The NewSchool of Architecture & Design (NewSchool) welcomes renowned architect and educator Larry Scarpa as the 2017 Commencement Ceremony keynote speaker. This year’s commencement will celebrate 130 graduates from the undergraduate and graduate architecture, construction management and design programs. The ceremony will be held at Symphony Hall in San Diego on Saturday, June 24. Scarpa has garnered international acclaim for his unique and unexpected use of conventional materials in design and he is considered a pioneer and leader in sustainable design and environmental sensitivity.

“We are honored to have the inspirational Larry Scarpa as our 2017 commencement speaker,” said Malecha. “A true citizen architect, he pays close attention to the context of the building and the needs of its users. At NewSchool, we believe in human-centered design – a problem-solving process that starts and ends with people – and our mission is to educate citizen architects and designers. Scarpa’s work has a level of human and environmental empathy that is unusual of many of the stars emerging in architecture, and resonates with our faculty and students. He has a joy for design that our graduates will find inspiring, as they look forward to beginning their own careers.” NewSchool of Architecture & Design Welcomes World Renowned Architect and Leader in Sustainable
