ARCHITECTURE LECTURE SERIES | Decentered Center
October 1 – November 26, 2018
All lectures are on Monday nights at 5 PM in 100 Rapson Hall
This lecture series aims to conceptualize architectural responses to underlying social and historical contradictions of our time. Speakers are asked to respond to the prompt of the “decentered center” and to engage participants on the agency of architecture to affect the persistent, and often invisible, systems that shape our lives.
