I wasn't able to live blog last night's lecture by Marc Simmons from Front, but it's just as well, as he talks so articulately that it's better to watch the video yourself, at the GSD's YouTube channel.
It was a great presentation of Front's façade consultation and design/build work, integrating conversations about architectural intentions, competitions and client relations, material experimentation and technology, digital fabrication, financial and contractual aspects of each job, construction, and affect and experience.
Something for everyone!
Thanks for reading.
P.S. Here's a concept diagram for program that I made for studio today...
Lectures and exhibitions, life in the trays, happenings around Cambridge...and once in a while, some studio and course work. Please note that all live blogs are abridged and approximate. If you want to see exactly what happened, in most cases a video of the event is posted online by the event's hosts. If you have concerns about how you are quoted, please contact me via Archinect's email.
