Freed of the provisional stabilities that alternately enabled and constrained modernity, our models of what architecture is, does, and could be in this century radically shifts in a Broken World model of design in which, as Steve Jackson notes, 'we take erosion, breakdown, and decay, rather than novelty, growth, and progress, as our starting points in thinking.' The Broken World model shift is equally epistemic in scope, practical in application, and hopeful in disposition: a model of architecture beyond growth, beyond comfort, and beyond the doldrums of normalizing pedagogy and practices.
A discussion following the lecture will be moderated by Sanford Kwinter. This event is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Model Behavior.
Kiel Moe is a practicing architect and author of several books on the material and energetic basis of architecture.
This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required.
