Field of Walls, Dogma, 2012

Wednesday, Jan 23, 7pm

SCI-Arc, W.M. Keck Lecture Hall

Intro by Todd Gannon, SCI-Arc Cultural Studies Coordinator

Pier Vittorio Aureli is an architect and educator. He is the co-founder of Dogma, an architectural studio that focuses on the project of the city. He teaches at the Architectural Association and Yale School of Architecture and is the author of The Project of Autonomy (2008) and The Possibility of an Absolute Architecture (2011).

Aureli's lecture will trace the development of the architectural project, focusing on the relationship between social and political conflicts and the urge of architecture to tame these conflicts and reform the city. His lecture attempts to situate architecture beyond regressive or progressive terms, as material evidence that the evolution of design has been always the outcome of struggle.
