Strange Utility: Architecture Toward Other Ends Symposium
Architecture has always been linked to the idea of utility-from primitive shelter to form following function. Utility is a central concern within contemporary architectural practice, but alongside some of the obvious benefits, the development of more energy efficient materials and processes and the economic incentive to redevelop existing buildings, have come some strange effects. With contributions from 14 scholars and architects, Strange Utility: Architecture Toward Other Ends recognizes contemporary utility, and seeks unexpected ways of defining this within the built environment.
Keynote Speakers include, Jimenez Lai (Leader of Bureau Spectacular, Chicago, Illinois & Author of Citizens of No Place), Philippe Rahm (Principal of Philippe Rahm Architects, Paris, France), & Jill Stoner (University of California, Berkeley & Author of Toward a Minor Architecture).
At this time tickets are $23 (plus $2 service charge; add $20 for 8 HSW/SD AIA Continuing Education Learning Units) & Click here to purchase and register.
