Carmel author to lecture on education, creativity, and architecture

The Monterey Institute of International Studies will present a lecture by Carmel architect and author Louis Roberts titled “Man Between Earth and Sky: Exploring the Connection Between Education, Creativity, and Architecture” on February 19 from 12:15 to 1:30 p.m. in the Irvine Auditorium at 499 Pierce Street in downtown Monterey.

The lecture is free and open to the public.

Roberts will analyze educational concepts that lead to ways of maximizing one’s creative potential, citing examples of architecture, planning, sculpture and mechanical devices, and then illustrate how this would apply to a creative community environment like the Monterey Institute. A question and answer session will follow the lecture, which is offered in conjunction with The Body in Education Spring Lecture Series hosted by Visiting Scholar Andrea Olsen, a professor of dance and environmental studies at Middlebury College.

Louis Roberts is a registered architect in California, and has a bachelor’s degree in architecture and a master’s degree in architecture, including urban design, from the University of Illinois. In addition to teaching at various universities and colleges in the U.S. and abroad, he is the author of Man Between Earth and Sky: A Symbolic Awareness of Architecture Through a Process of Creativity.
