Archinect's Architecture School Lecture Guide for Fall 2013
Here on Archinect we recently launched "Get Lectured", where we'll feature a school's lecture series--along with their snazzy posters--for the current season. UPDATE: We've begun adding international schools!
Although the Fall '13 term will wrap up soon for many schools, we'll still post some select posters and lecture series worth checking out.
Our featured poster of the day comes from the Princeton University School of Architecture. The "Rarefied" series still has two more lectures for the fall term. Each Wednesday session will present debates between speakers, Princeton SoA faculty, and select graduate students as they discuss different modalities of "Rarefied" architecture -- described in the shortened summary below:
"Princeton School of Architecture will hold a series of lectures and public debates about the aesthetics of the Rarefied: what is the architecture that grows in a resource-depleted environment? Rarefied aims to capture an environment, an atmosphere of asphyxia which surrounds a practice driven by the lack of financial credit and natural resources. Which are the practices and the aesthetics that will succeed these decades of excess, and the architecture that results from them?"
Want to share your school's lecture series? Send us your school's lecture series poster and details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lectures take place at 6 p.m. in room N107, Architecture Building. Each lecture will also have a Live Stream here.
