    This past Wednesday, one of our own, Ashley Schafer, lectured at the Knowlton School. Her talk focused on the United States Pavilion at the 2014 Venice Biennale, which she was a co-curator of, along with Eva Franch i Gilabert and Ana Miljački. This Biennale, curated by Rem Koolhaas, was titled "Fundamentals", focusing on the base elements that comprise architecture. The curatorial team for the US looked at this topic in terms of the architectural office, a place that is intended to be a breeding ground for architectural ideas. As a tactic, they have turned the pavilion into a working office complete with partners that are currently producing as an office would. The walls of the office are lined with projects that have come out of the United States, showcasing the impact that United States Architectural offices have had on the rest of the world.

    During her lecture, Ashley broke down the thought process that went into the exhibition and the relative success that it has had. She gave the audience insight into some of the more minute decisions that went into creating what is currently on display.
