Gehry Technologies CTO Dennis Shelden to Speak at Metals in Construction 2012 Facades Conference

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 13, 2012) - Gehry Technologies (GT), a leader in design and project management technology and consulting services, today announces that CTO Dennis Shelden will lead a speaking session titled Creating the 8 Spruce Street Façade at the Metals in Construction 2012 Facades Conference, to be held Thursday, February 16th at the McGraw-Hill Auditorium in New York, New York.

"This should be a very informative discussion and I look forward to speaking in detail on the 8 Spruce Street tower, designed by Frank Gehry, and how it demonstrates the results achievable through BIM driven collaboration between designer and fabricator," said Dr. Shelden. "The tower demonstrates the ability to achieve a highly customized building enclosure with limited cost premium over conventional curtain wall."

Dennis Shelden is a Founder and the CTO of Gehry Technologies, as well as an Associate Professor of the Practice in Design and Computation at MIT. He joined Gehry Partners in 1997 and became director of the firm's computation efforts in 2000, where he was responsible for the management and strategic direction of the firm's technology efforts, prior to co-founding GT in 2002. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Architectural Design, a Master of Science in Civil and Environmental Engineering, and a Ph.D. in Computation and Architectural Design from MIT.

Presented by the Ornamental Metal Institute of New York and The Architect's Newspaper, this two-day event is the first in a series of conferences created to help designers and builders understand the ways in which technology can transform design aspirations into reality.
