In the case of the former, this has ranged from Frank Gehry&lsquo;s work on the LA River and Michael Maltzan&rsquo;s work on the Sixth Street Aquaduct to Bjarke Ingels&rsquo; resilient strategy for Manhattan. At the same time, most of this work is being engaged by multidisciplinary teams, in which architecture plays only one role within a larger field of actors.</p><p>The questions that emerge from this new reality are largely disciplinary in nature, and touch on issues of expertise, competence, education and licensure. They ask whether the profession of architecture represents specialist or generalist knowledge, whether design education should be retooled in response to these transformations, and if it i...</p> James Timberlake to Lecture at the BAC deancascieri 2017-03-21T15:08:02-04:00 >2017-03-21T15:08:37-04:00 <p>The Boston Architectural College invites the community to join us for the 25th lecture in the&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank">Cascieri Lectureship in Humanties</a>&nbsp;series featuring James Timberlake, partner at KieranTimberlake, on April 12, 2017 at 6 pm in Cascieri Hall.</p><p>By undertaking a path of research into new materials and technologies that alter the way we build and inhabit our environments, KieranTimberlake reshapes our expectations of architecture.

These emerging technological paradigms promise a heightened sense of interaction between humans and their environment. In these new scenarios, the software and hardware ecosystems are exceedingly gaining autonomy. Virtual worlds are no longer limited to be interfaces that merely enhance the physical environment but are becoming spaces in their own right; blurring the distinction between the physical and the digital in our constructed reality. &nbsp;<strong>The Symposium: Machines of Loving Grace</strong>&nbsp;expands the contemporary discussion on the evolution of human-machine society into the domain of architectural discourse.</p><p>Focusing on these new design ec...</p> Unmentionables Symposium nreyes 2017-03-07T14:55:22-05:00 >2017-03-07T14:55:22-05:00 <img src="" width="650" height="502" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>The <a href="" target="_blank">Unmentionables Symposium</a> is an inaugural two-day event hosted by the Department of Interior Architecture at<a href="" target="_blank"> Woodbury University</a><a href="" target="_blank"> School of Architecture</a> and held at <strong>Helms Design Center in Culver City, April 7-8, 2017</strong>.

WUHO Gallery, a non-profit gallery at Woodbury School of Architecture, presents&nbsp;<em>The Human Beast: Art of Maxine Kim Stussy &amp; Jan Stussy</em>, an exhibition that demonstrates the artists&rsquo; exploration of the melding of animalistic and human impulses in mankind. Both exquisite craftspersons, the couple revealed in their early works a mutual interest in this singular approach to the figure. Comprised of twenty sculptures, paintings, and works on paper, ranging over four decades, this exhibition focuses on Jan&rsquo;s large-scale works, and sheds new light on Maxine&rsquo;s under-recognized oeuvre.</p><p>This exhibition is curated by Michael Duncan, a Los Angeles-based independent curator and critic.</p><p>In 194...</p> FAIA Salon: Annie Chu and Jeanine Centuori nreyes 2016-10-27T15:02:09-04:00 >2016-10-27T15:02:10-04:00 <img src="" width="650" height="390" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Join us on <strong>Thursday, October 27, 2016 at 6pm at WUHO gallery</strong> for the FAIA Salon.
