Speakers (Subject to Change)

Gary Cunningham | Gary Cunningham Architects
Gary is the founder and president of Cunningham Architects. He has worked as an architect since 1976. His interests range from the broad aspects of master planning to the details of architectural technology and interior design. Mr. Cunningham teaches, lectures on The Work of Cunningham Architects, and contributes work to many architectural publications.

Cade Hayes | Jesus Robles | DUST
Drawing inspiration from the desert and mountains that surround them, the firm has captured attention for their great sensitivity to material and context.

DUST’s designs are lauded for their tactile quality and inherent respect for the site itself. These efforts not only create a meditative space rooted in the landscape, but they also provide answers to the complex question of how architects can build ethically in an era where the effects of climate change are becoming increasingly visible.

Mell Lawrence | Mell Lawrence Architects 
Mell studied architecture at the University of Texas in Austin. After working with Charles Moore and a partnership with Paul Lamb, Mell started his firm in 1991. Mell Lawrence Architects was voted 2001 AIA Austin Firm of the Year in recognition of its consistent excellence in design and contribution to creating a unique architecture. His work has been published extensively and been recognized with design awards at local, national, and state levels. In 2007, Mell was honored as a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects in Los Angeles. He hails from Houston.

Emily Little | Clayton Korte
Emily has provided leadership in the preservation and design community in her native Austin for over thirty years. In 1983, Emily founded Emily Little Architects, a predecessor firm to Clayton & Little Architects. Elected a Fellow in the American Institute of Architects in 2009, Emily has also led award-winning community based art projects that have garnered national attention. She was inducted into the Austin Arts Hall of Fame in 2007.
