About this event

Architecture as Catalyst 2017
March 6-10, 2017

Each spring, the School of Architecture offers a series of workshops for students, led by faculty and taught in collaboration with guest instructors who are leading practitioners within their disciplines, and who bring an experimental nature to the work. The Catalyst workshops serve as intense, rigorous, transformative and creative breaks, through which students learn new ways of thinking and novel techniques. In conjunction with the workshops, each guest instructor offers a free public lecture. With the theme of difference, Architecture as Catalyst 2017 invites new fictions of space, material, sensation, culture and reality by way of reflecting upon agile points/spheres of relative comparison while observing those differences which make a difference. We hope you can join us!
