Roddy Langmuir, senior director with the London architectural practice Cullinan Studio has taught and lectured widely in the UK and abroad. His practice as a designer and project leader includes buildings and master plans that embody sustainable principles and the innovative use of wood, concrete, stone and other natural materials.

Roddy grew up in the Scottish Highlands and studied architecture in Edinburgh. He has designed residences, institutional buildings and community master pans and has served on design juries around the world. He was the project architect at Stonehenge in the '90s. His and Cullinan's work integrate principles of sustainability throughout, including pioneering the use of wood structures in medium and large buildings. He will talk about how renewable and local materials can inspire innovative designs of great beauty that exemplify high efficiency and low environmental impact. 

This IEF Boise program, jointly offered with City Club of Boise,  is being held in addition to Mr. Langmuir's visit to the University of Idaho in Moscow to keynote the UI Inspiring Design Futures event.
