    The University of Miami School of Architecture continues its lecture series, "A Call to Order" this Spring. This series is made possible in part from TECNOGLASS, whose mission is glass transformation and distribution through high manufacturing technology, completely satisfying and fulfilling our customers expectations in quality and service, maintaining our competitiveness through empowerment, and thus contributing to the companies permanent growth and prosperity, adequately and fairly compensating the members of our organization, their families, stockholders and society in general.

    Kicking things off will be a lecture by the award winning firm, Machado & Silvetti followed by a symposium a week later titled Young Ancients.  Young Ancients, a symposium in the TECNOGLASS Series at the University of Miami School of Architecture, brings together a group of young architects who are re-investing in history, typology and urban morphology. The emerging sensibility rehearses the Neo-Rationalist ethos of the seventies, grounding visions for livable and sustainable cities on reinforced disciplinary foundations.

    Moderated by Dean Rodolphe el-Khoury, the architects participating in the symposium are:

PRODUCTORA´s work is distinguished by an interest in precise geometries, the production of clearly legible projects with limited gestures and the search for timeless buildings in their material and programmatic resolutions.

About this Blog

This blog gives a sneak peak into the architecture world at the University of Miami. What began as an experiment following one group of incoming graduate students through their first semester of design, has morphed into a window of the school of architecture through this professor's eyes. I will try to post as often as possible.
