British Architect J Parrish, Concept Designer Of Australian Olympic Stadium, To Speak At U.Va.

February 14, 2001-- J Parrish, a proponent of computers as the ultimate design tool, will give a Dean’s Forum Lecture titled "Stadium Australia and Other Projects" at the University of Virginia School of Architecture on Friday, Feb. 23. The talk at 5 p.m. in Campbell Hall, Room 153 is open to the public.

Parrish, an associate of Ove Arup & Partners International Ltd. in London, was project architect with Lobb Partnership for the Olympic Sports Stadium in Sydney, Australia, the largest modern stadium in Olympic history. The project was conceived entirely on the computer, with no sketches or drawings, and was totally dependent on 3-D computer modeling. Architects and engineers communicated by phone, fax and e-mail and had no face-to-face meetings during the course of the project.
