Friends and alumni of the Department of Interior Architecture & Design gathered in Atlanta on September 21 for a reception at the Steelcase Worklife Center. With students and faculty from both Studio II and Studio IV in town on field trips, students had the opportunity to rub shoulders with alumni and to take a tour of the Steelcase showroom in midtown. Department chair Lisa Waxman delivered a presentation on the recent activities and accomplishments of the department while interim dean, Scott Shamp, and foundation office, Jessica Comas, gave updates on the college and FSU. The department’s advisory board attended the reception and their fall meeting was held the next day. Special thanks go to corporate sponsors Steelcase, 3form, and Interface.
