Current Work: DnA_Design and Architecture

Tue, May 31 '227 PM  –  Tue, May 31 '228:30 PM

Current Work is a lecture series featuring leading figures in the worlds of architecture, urbanism, design, and art.

DnA_Design and Architecture is an interdisciplinary practice founded in Beijing, China, in 2004. Its founding principal, Xu Tiantian, practices what she calls “architectural acupuncture”: a subtle, localized approach to the revitalization of rural China’s built environment. In collaboration with village communities and provincial governments, DnA has built over 20 public structures in China’s mountainous Songyang County and other rural regions. Using natural materials and local craft, its work celebrates each site’s cultural heritage while opening new social and economic futures in the places where it works. 

The lecture will be followed by a conversation and Q&A with Calvin Tsao, a founding principal of Tsao & McKown.

This program is free and open to all. Advance registration is required; learn more and register.
