The experts, Larry Lander and Lauri Lampson, are executives at PDR, a Houston-based, multidisciplinary design firm, an international leader in the research, design and delivery of beautiful, effective workplace solutions. Lander and Lampson have looked carefully at the impact the coronavirus pandemic will have on the workplace.

The annual Rowlett Lecture is named in honor of John Miles Rowlett, former professor of architecture at Texas A&M, who along with fellow Aggie design professor William W. Caudill and graduate students Wallie E Scott Jr. ‘43 and William Merriweather Peña ‘42 established the legendary architectural firm CRS.

The Rowlett Lecture was endowed in 1979 through a grant to the Texas Architectural Foundation by CRS Inc. and Mrs. Virginia Rowlett.
