The 2012 Global Practices in Architecture Lecture Series invites expert educators and practitioners from around the world to the Twin Cities to share unique perspectives and insights about the Architecture profession.
L.E.FT is a New York-based architecture collective dedicated to examining the intersections of cultural and political production as they relate to the built environment. Established by architects Makram el Kadi and Ziad Jamaleddine in 2001, the ﬁrm has been recognized internationally with numerous awards, publications, and exhibitions for quality and excellence in design. The partners combine their architectural practice with research projects conducted in studios at several universities in the U.S., including Yale, MIT, UPenn, Cornell, and Columbia.
