Perhaps no issue defines the challenges faced by Los Angles, and indeed cities across North America, more than housing: Should there be more or less public housing?

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 >2017-03-28T18:06:10-04:00 <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.
