    March 9th, 2015: "ALPHABET" Lecture by Thomas Weaver of AA School

    Mar 8, '15 11:59 PM EST

    On March 9th, T_ADS will host a lecture by Thomas Weaver. 

    Title: ALPHABET

    This talk will be structured around an alphabet of 26 key images, from A through to Z, Albers through to to Zebra, that have appeared over the last eight years through the pages of the architectural journal AA Files. Each image will be presented not only through its immediate place within the journal, but through its pictorial, anecdotal, historiographic and iconographic architectural associations. The effect, hopefully, will be of a varied and eclectic architecture in 26 parts, yet one that still somehow suggests the singularity of a unified, whole project.

    Thomas Weaver teaches at the AA School of Architecture in London, where he also edits all of the AA's books and journals, including the award-winning title, AA Files.

    When: March 9th (Monday) from 14:00-15:30

    Where: The University of Tokyo, Hongo Campus, Faculty of Engineering, Bldg#1, ADS Studio 415
