    Dora Epstein Jones lectured this past Wednesday at the Knowlton School, presenting a lecture title "loaded". Dora, a professor of architecture at Sci-Arc, is an architectural historian, theorist, and critic, which becomes evident quickly when listening to her lecture. She started in a place unusual for architecture lectures with quotes from religious text. But soon this became clear as she tied this into a talk about stacking, something very familiar to the architecture community. She strung the topic from brick-work within the Colosseum, to Projective geometries, to Greg Lynn's Blob Wall. This lecture on stacking was particularly interesting after last week's lecture by Preston Scott Cohen on "Successive Architecture".
