José Oubrerie's Miller House stands as the architect's most notable work in the United States.
On Wednesday, March 19, the Knowlton School hosted a panel discussion about Et in Suburbia Ego: José Oubrerie's Miller House. Kristy Balliet, Assistant Professor of Architecture, introduced the panel discussion which was moderated by the book's editor Todd Gannon of SCI-arc.
Panelists included Doug Graf, Jeffrey Kipnis, José Oubrerie, Michael Cadwell and John McMorrough.
Images shown included a number of unpublished drawings from Oubrerie's personal archive.
Et in Suburbia Ego: José Oubrerie's Miller House gathers new interpretation and commentary by all of the panelists as well as Kenneth Frampton. Alongside the essays are a number of previously unpublished drawings, models, and photographs as well as newly commissioned photographs that document the house to a level of detail that has not been seen before in any publication.
Students, faculty and guests were in attendance for the panel discussion that lasted just over one hour.
Following the panel discussion, Todd Gannon gave a lecture on "Theory & Design in the Last Machine Age." Currently, Gannon is a professor of history, theory, and design studio at SCI-arc. He also serves as Graduate Thesis Research Advisor and acts as coordinator of the cultural studies curriculum.
Et in Suburbia Ego: José Oubrerie's Miller House is available for pre-order on Amazon, and will be officially released on April 30, 2014.
