Veronafiere, host and organizer of Marmomacc, and Santa Margherita SpA, have selected Steven Trott, Project Architect at the Hnedak Bobo Group (Memphis, TN) as the winner of the continuing education contest hosted by AEC Daily. Steven will receive a free trip to Verona and Milan, Italy, to attend “Designing With Natural Stone,” Marmomacc’s week-long continuing education program for architects on stone design.
Steven has nearly 30 years of experience in design, having served in a multitude of capacities, coordinating all aspects of architectural projects. His current work involves a significant focus on the detailing of his firm’s design work. "I am truly excited to be a part of this conference and eagerly await learning what's new in the stone industry,” said Steven upon being informed that he was selected as the contest winner. “I look forward to the prospect of applying this knowledge in my architectural practice and bringing new ideas home with me after the conference is over so that I might share them with others. This opportunity to travel abroad , meet other participants from around the world, and experience life in another culture will be an absolutely awesome experience I'm sure I will never forget!"
“Designing With Natural Stone” offers a unique combination of classroom lectures, guided architectural tours, and field trips to local quarries, as well as to natural stone processing facilities. This comprehensive approach enables architects to better understand stone’s full life-cycle -- including how marble is quarried, cut, processed, finished, selected for specific jobs and installed, all using the latest technologies and products.
Veronafiere is a trade fair host and organizer based in Verona, Italy. Santa Margherita SpA is a manufacturer of engineered stone materials based in Volargne, near Verona.
