Lecture by Sean Canty (BArch 2010), whose teaching, research, and practice explore unexpected forms of visuality, motivated by architectural type and geometry.

Sean Canty is a Designer and Assistant Professor of Architecture at the Harvard Graduate School of Design. He is the principal of Studio SC, and one of the founding principals of Office III (OIII), an experimental architectural collective that spans New York, San Francisco, and Cambridge. Selected as a finalist for the 2016 MoMA PS1 Young Architects competition, OIII has completed a Welcome Center for Governors Island and exhibited work at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. In 2020, Sean was awarded the Richard Rogers Fellowship for this project, “Before Images, After Pictures, and Somewhere In-between,” a speculative exploration in revisiting the 18th-century English Picturesque tradition.
