D265: Master Designer Methods: Kirk Bianchi, Crafting the Outdoor Space as a Living Art Form

In-Person – Southwest Pool & Spa Show
16 hours | 1.6 IACET CEUs | 16 PHTA CEUs

"The pool is but a mirror, reflecting that which you wish to accentuate beyond it." As part of the new GENESIS Master Designer Methods series, Bianchi will retrain your thinking of water vessel design. "The pool is often built first in the sequence of outdoor improvements. For the best integration, however, it should actually be designed last." Bianchi's method will require students to rethink their design approach, with a landscape-based process that considers the functionality of the entire space first. The course lecture and projects will focus on sightlines, living spaces, traffic flow, spatial considerations, and more.


C260: Vinyl Liner / Fiberglass Pools

January 23–25 | Time: 8 am ET – 5 pm ET

$2,090 PHTA Member / $2,290 Non-member

Whether a pool is concrete, vinyl liner, or fiberglass, the necessities of a properly executed project remain the same. The water vessel requires correct hydraulics, proper installation, code compliance, and a desired esthetic. To meet the educational demands of an increasing market, GENESIS is launching a 24-hour Vinyl Liner / Fiberglass Pool Construction School.

This course is an introduction to the fundamentals of good design and will teach you how to lay out the different improvements in your projects (e.g. pool, spa, patio, etc). We will break the fundamentals down into two categories: the Elements of Design and the Principles of Design. Once you have a good grasp of the fundamentals, you will learn how to apply them. We will start with short practice exercises and build up to a final project: creating a master plan that includes a pool and spa.
