Norwich University’s School of Architecture + Art continues its 2015-16 Lecture Series with local architect Eli Gould, founder of design firm Ironwood Brand.
Gould will speak this coming Friday, Nov. 6 at 3 p.m. in the Chaplin Hall Gallery about his career as an architect and the innovations his firm brings to projects in the building industry.
Gould founded his firm Ironwood Brand in 1994 as a “Timber/Mill/Design/Build” firm. Based in Brattleboro, Vt., it offers custom prefab and installation of sophisticated timber designs. Ironwood Brand has designed and built some of the highest performing buildings in Vermont and is consistently sought after for unique design practice in challenging situations.
Gould’s firm is also developing three new companies specializing in advanced forestry and larger scale/lower cost prefabricated housing.
A licensed architect and graduate of Yale University, Gould began his career of high performance design practice at leading green-design firm William Maclay Architects in 2000. Gould went on to be involved in major projects, such as the Open_1 Prototype with MIT and Crotched Mountain Rehabilitation Center (CMRC), and was involved in the startup of Charpentes Montmorency, a timber frame manufacturing company for high-end design.
The NU School of Architecture + Art Lecture Series is supported by a generous grant from the Jack and Dorothy Byrne Foundation. For more than 10 years, the Byrne Foundation has partnered with Norwich to bring eminent national and international architects, designers, artists, and writers to campus. Events are free and open to the public.
