Kramer will speak about “Innovation and Tradition in an Increasingly Complex World.” His talk will start at 7 p.m. in the Richard E. Beaupre Center for Chemical and Forensic Sciences, Room 105A, 140 Flagg Road, on the Kingston campus. The talk is free and open to the public.

Kramer has designed many landscapes involving the renewal and enrichment of campuses, cities and institutions.
