  • Lecture - Peter Eisenman

    This past weekend, Peter Eisenman of Eisenman Architects presented a lecture at the Knowlton School titled "The Discipline of Architecture". Here, he addressed the state of architecture schools in relation to their past, specifically how his experience differed from what he sees in schools now.  Really, the lions share of the talk was more inspirational than anything, urging students to reevaluate how they operate within the school and how they pull from architectural history.

    After settling, Eisenman then took the crowd on a journey through the City of Culture of Galicia, pulling the project apart and allowing the students an in-depth explanation of the relationships within and without that the city-in-a-city wishes to create. Stepping through the multiple scales, from the city scale, to the minor detail, it was wonderful to get a walk through by the architect himself.
