BUILDING | unBUILDING

The understanding that the forms, spaces, environments, and ecologies that we inhabit are all constructed has enabled Yolande Daniels to craft a practice that consists of both building and un-building in which the art of designing space, objects, and environments requires one to go beyond the surface and beyond the object. This work explores architectural objects and patterns at multiple scales that range from societal patterns that inform the design of objects and spaces, to the design of objects, and patterning of object-surfaces.
  • Address ethics in architecture through examples that illustrate the effect of implicit and explicit social and economic rules on spatial relationships and physical form.
  • Represent various ways that cultural phenomena may be spatialized.
  • Explore the effect of societal difference on architecture and the city.
  • Engage the question of how more equitable cities may be produced.
Yolande Daniels is a founding partner of studioSUMO (NY), an academic/architecture partnership focused on innovative design involving research, formal exploration, and material invention. Her research revealing connections between social systems and the spaces they are enacted in has led to strategies derived from non-linear and informal systems, interest in pattern-making logic, rule-sets, and games. 

This lecture series is presented by the School of Architecture and Women in Architecture Student Organization (WIASO) with support from the Cass Gilbert Lecture Fund.
