Lindsey's research has long focused on applying digital tools to design and construction practice. A practicing architect, Lindsey worked with Davis + Gannon Architects to design the Pittsburgh Glass Center, which earned a gold rating under LEED guidelines. The project also received a Design Honor Award from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and was chosen as one of 2005's top 10 green buildings by the AIA's Committee on the Environment.
As a teacher and administrator, Bruce Lindsey has made significant contributions to beginning design education, sustainable design education, and community design education. His book Digital Gehry: Material Resistance Digital Construction (2001) explores the use of technology in the design process of architect Frank Gehry. Lindsey began his tenure as Dean of Architecture at Washington University in St. Louis in 2006. He was named one of the Most Admired Educators of 2009 by DesignIntelligence.
Science On Tap is a place where, for the price of a beverage, anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology. Meetings take place outside a traditional academic context, in the Crown Room at Schlafly Bottleworks.
Meetings are held on the last Wednesday of the month during the academic year, usually from 7:00 - 8:30 PM. The standard format is as follows: 20 minutes of presentation, followed by a 7 minute break for attendees to introduce themselves to each other at the table, and then an hour of discussion. Seating is limited to the first 100 people. No reservations accepted.
