Interrobang San Diego
SOHO is excited to announce a 10 month lecture series that originated when four of San Diego's premier design-oriented organizations, the San Diego chapters of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA), the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and SOHO got together and asked, "How can we improve design discussion and debate locally?" It was decided that a collaborative effort that would maximize educational opportunies, share expertise, and build solidarity would be an exciting joint venture.
Topics will include what designers and the public want to know about historic preservation, green design and smart growth, and more.
We call the series Interrobang. If you're not sure just what an Interrobang is, it's a punctuation mark. Created in the 1960s, Interrobang from the Latin for query was introduced by type designer Martin Speckter. The Wall Street Journal deemed this punctuation exactly right for when the question mark alone just isn't adequate." The Interrobang can convey in print an attitude, curiosity, and wonder. An example would be "Wow, have you heard about the new lecture series‽"
Kelly Fore Dixon, ASLA, who is a committee chair said, "Combining forces and resources was a no brainer. We're all non-profit organizations and collectively we can reach more people with better programming."
Interrobang will be hosted on the second Tuesday of every month at the Museum of Contemporary Art, La Jolla (MCASD), 700 Prospect Street at the Coast Room
