Our February speaker will be Kevin Schweizer of the firm Schweizer-Waldroff Architects, Inc of New Smyrna Beach. Using the Snowden residence in New Smyrna Beach which he designed, Kevin will demonstrate energy production and conservation as well as water reuse and preservation. He will also discuss availability of state and federal assistance for solar power.

Kevin is a second generation architect following his father into the profession. He was awarded a Bachelor Degree in Design by the University of Florida in 1981 and a Masters Degree in Architecture by California Polytechnic State University in 1984. He is a recipient of the Henry Adams Award for his thesis work.

Kevin began his career with his father?s firm, Schweizer Incorporated, as an intern while in university then as an architect after graduation. In 1988 he and two siblings formed Integrated Design Group. Kevin was later joined by Scott Waldroff to form their present firm.

Kevin is the author of "The Ocean Resource Center" (copyright 1984) a floating research and recreation facility using OTEC, Ocean Thermal Energy Conservation, as the power source to sustain and build the project. Kevin's work has been featured in the Orlando Sentinel, New Smyrna Beach News Journal, Orlando Metro Home Magazine and Home Digest Magazine. His own home in New Smyrna Beach was displayed on the 1994 Images Tour of Homes.
