    The Knowlton School was fortunate enough to have Preston Scott Cohen as the Autumn 2014 Herbert Baumer Distinguished Visiting Professor which included two weekends worth of sessions with the third year Architecture Graduate students and concluded on Monday with a lecture to the entirety of the Knowlton School. In the lecture, Cohen took the audience through a theory that he is currently working on which he terms "Successive Architecture".

     

    At its core, this is a concept that comes from the stacking of floor plates. He began the talk by looking at slightly different fields, contemplating Warhol and Duchamp, specifically in relation to technological advancement and industrial production in the arts. Within the field of architecture he spans the argument from Michelangelo to his own current work, dragging in various other works along the way. Having Cohen at the school discussing architectural practice these past two weeks has been nothing short of fantastic.
