Faculty Discussion Series I - Contemporary Questions Fall 2016

Tuesday, September 20, 2016 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT (GMT -04:00)

Contemporary Questions is a discussion series focusing on important issues that divide us today. Each session will allow 3-4 faculty members to address an urgent topic for architectural research and design in relation to their own work and other contemporary examples. Each discussion will begin with a five minute opening presentation with five slides, followed by a moderated discussion and questions from the audience. The topics are structured dialectically around provocative issues in the hope that this will elicit constructive dialogue. The weeks are structured around different subjects: 1. social / political, 2. Environmental, 3. Technological, 4. Urban / Economic. These sessions are designed to introduce the interests and research of faculty members to graduate students searching for supervisors for their thesis work, but all students are welcome to attend.
