Mark your calendars!
In case you missed it, HQ just released our list of upcoming lectures, symposia, and events for the spring semester. I have to say, they’ve really outdone themselves this semester! Not only do we have some flashy names on the calender (i.e. Sylvia Lavin (04-03), Shigeru Ban (02-27), Thom Mayne (04-07), and Sarah Whiting (04-17) but the rest of the lineup has a great combination of interesting conversations, established designers and thinkers, and exciting newcomers. We’ve got a great lineup of Symposia too- ACT (03-06 to 03-07), AKPIA (04-10 to 04-11), and CAU (04-11 to 04-12).
I’m especially excited for the Architectural Design “Dinner with the In-Laws” series, “an internal debate series among family on the disciplinary topics that shape the practice and research of our school.” It’s always great to get a little more insight into the inner workings of our own MIT community. And I bet the debate between colleagues will really keep our faculty on their toes- for example when Ana Miljački takes on Skylar Tibbits (03-11), or when Liam O’Brien & Meejin Yoon go head-to-head (04-16). I can’t wait to see everyone bring their A-game!
The list hasn’t gone live on the website yet, but if its not in your inbox you should be able to find it soon at http://architecture.mit.edu/lectures.
