Design Museum Mornings with David Silverman, a registered architect and Principal of Silverman Trykowski Associates

The co-work sector is thriving right now. People working together, gaining inspiration from each other and collaborating is a huge workplace trend. Take that concept one step further and you get an incubator space. Why is an “incubator” space different from regular co-working spaces? “Incubators”  focus on particular market sectors such as clean-tech, robotics, health sciences, and music. These spaces are much more targeted and customized to fit the needs of companies within them while remaining flexible for growth and change. David Silverman will lead the morning discussion by diving into how good design can help to shape customized solutions for these sectors and more.

Join us in December for Design Museum Mornings at Red Thread + Steelcase for breakfast and a great conversation about incubator workplaces.

Doors open at 8:30am; Presentation begins at 9:00am

The Speaker

David Silverman, Principal, Silverman Trykowski Associates

David Silverman is a registered architect and Principal of Silverman Trykowski Associates, a Boston based architecture and interior design studio. David began practicing architecture in the late 1980’s while earning his Bachelor’s Degree in Architecture from the Boston Architectural College.  After working for local area design firms, he went on to work at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology as an in-house architect, and later as Senior Project Manager for Design overseeing the design and construction of MIT’s 720,000 square foot award-winning Ray and Maria Stata Center designed by Frank Gehry.

David is active in the design community as an educator, most especially at the Boston Architectural College. Since graduating the BAC in 1994, David has taught studios, chaired the thesis committee, and served on the Board of Trustees and as President of the Alumni Association. In 2010, David founded the Urban Neighborhood Design Alliance, a non-profit organization providing educational initiatives for people of all ages to actively engage in the design of their neighborhoods. In 2012, David received the Award for Excellence in Teaching given by the BSA + AIA College of Fellows. David currently serves on the board of the Boston Society of Architects Foundation and has previously served on the boards of Design Museum Foundation and the BSA Foundation’s Learning By Design.
