    So MIT's lecture series this spring semester is pretty bloody good. Cheers to the students and faculty here for putting together such a strong schedule. Here's the list:

    February 27
    François Roche

    March 1
    Peter Eisenman
    "Beyond the Index"

    March 13
    Richard Meier
    "Richard Meier on Architecture"

    April 3
    Massimo Carmassi
    “Time and Architecture”

    April 10
    Zaha Hadid
    “Total Fluidity”

    April 18
    Glenn Murcutt
    “Process: An Architecture of Response rather than an Architecture of Imposition”

    April 24
    David Adjaye
    “David Adjaye: Recent Work”

    May 1
    Cecil Balmond

    I suggest MIT rename their lecture series topic from "Revolution" to "Sampler Pack."

      FYI Zaha and old peter are the horrible lecturers. I have seen them both twice and wished i did not go, and will not go in the future.

      aside that i wouldn't go to some, like zaha, that's a pretty stacked line-up...who bats in the nine hole?

      but yeah, why call it revolution? how bout aging veteran free agents?

      sorry for all the baseball analogies... pitchers and catchers on friday!

      i like that glen murcutt and zaha are right next to eachother. i wanna see a punch up.

      Murcutt is an amazing lecturer, he moves really quickly.

      wow. is this a "my endowment is bigger than your endowment" face-off with GSD? either way, it's a good semester to be in cambridge.
      eveytime i've gone to see murcutt, he's been a great speaker. his enthusiasm is contagious. i'd love to have had him for a professor.

      who's going to be hadid's lucky boytoy?
