Announcing our Fall 2016 Lecture Series!

The UMN School of Architecture Fall 2016 Lecture Series brings together a range of leading architects, designers, historians, and theorists whose work, research, and writings are actively reshaping the discourse of architecture and the ways in which it is taught, contextualized, practiced, and constructed. These lectures will present their current bodies of work and research through unique lenses guiding their own design practices andpedagogy.

Monday + Wednesday nights lectures were curated by Kris Mun and Andrew Lucia. Friday evening lectures ("Resilient Infrastructures") were organized by Vince Debritto, Karen Lutsky, Ozayr Saloojee and James Wheeler and were funded by the UofMN Imagine Fund and the UMN Imagine Chair in the Arts, Design and Humanities.

It's a phenomenal lecture series, with lectures by Ferda Kolatan(PennDesign), Jennifer Siegel (USC), Shannon Mattern(New School), Karen Lewis (The OSU), Elena Manferdini (Sci-ARC), Dilip Da Cunha (PennDesign), Lars Spuybroek (GIT) and Annette Fiero (PennDesign). Get them on your calendars!
