    MIT Architecture Lecture Series: Global Practice

    Spring 2008

    By now, global architectural practice has already graduated from the initial phase of being a somewhat mysterious and glorified enterprise. The jetsetters have long become tired jetlaggers. Today, global practice seems to be just another approach to survival for many architects and firms. This new condition deserves a moment of reflection:

    How has global practice impacted architecture, art, and design?

    What is the current status of global practice?

    How may global practice further transform the way we work and think?

    All lectures are on Thursdays at 6:30 pm in Room 34-101. Lectures are free and open to the public. For some lectures, members of the MIT community with IDs will be admitted between 5:45-6:10 pm and the general public will be admitted as space permits at 6:20 pm.

    Room 34-101 is located at 50 Vassar Street, in Building 34 (EG&G Education Center). An interactive map may be found on-line at: map-jpg.
