Alumnus Lecture by RODE Architects | Kevin Deabler + Eric Robinson

March 30, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Alumnus: Eric Robinson + Kevin Deabler, Co-Principals and Co-Owners of RODE Architects, Boston, MA                      

What:  LEED Accredited principals and owners of Boston-based RODEArchitects, Eric J. Robinson (BEDA ’94) and Kevin S. Deabler (BEDA ’95, BArch ’96), return to NC State to share their story and insights in a lecture at the NC State College of Design. The two met during their freshman year at NC State in their first design studio and went on to found their firm, Boston-based RODE Architects, in 2005. Robinson and Deabler have worked on transformative projects throughout the city of Boston, producing positive changes in the surrounding city neighborhoods; the duo take innovative approaches to how they plan and develop buildings, neighborhoods and cities, in Boston and beyond, using a flexible design process with emphasis on collaboration.

 In the lecture, Eric and Kevin will reflect on their beginnings at NC State and discuss the ways in which the College of Design continues to influence their work today. They will talk about how their firm seeks to find the most transformative outcome in every project site and its surroundings, which is a process that reflects directly on the fundamentals taught at the College of Design. With many projects currently in design, under construction, or recently completed, RODEArchitects is playing an influential role in shaping Boston’s architectural future.

 Robinson and Deabler return to the College of Design to share their journey, inspire those just at the start of their careers, and to remind students that their future business partner could be sitting right beside them.

 When: Thursday, March 30, 2017  |  12:00 p.m.

 Where:  Allred Gallery (Kamphoefner Hall)

 Why:  The opportunity to hear from principals Eric Robinson and Kevin Deabler on how their experiences at NC State led to the creation of RODE Architects and continue to influence their design in greater Boston today.
