January 24, 2017 | Lecture Series: Jake and Melissa Brillhart
Brillhart Architecture is borne out of a love for and facility with “making” things. In the natural course of development, tectonics, materiality and the logic of construction have become a primary focus of interest. Relying on a back-to-basics approach, we often study old models for future buildings, marrying archetypes and prototypes with new materials, fabrication and construction assemblies – all the while placing heavy emphasis on process as a means of furthering creativity and invention. The goal is to create a contemporary and dynamic building vocabulary that resuscitates the Ancient, celebrates the Modern, and foresees an architecture without big style.
November 15, 2016 | Lecture Series: Stereotank
Stereotank is a design studio founded by Marcelo Ertorteguy and Sara Valente. The practice is dedicated to the exploration of the common grounds between architecture, art and sound. The studio works as a laboratory for the experimentation and creation of architectural artifacts, immersive installations, hybrid objects and instruments often using repurposed materials and pre-fab systems, conceiving the end result with the potential of being further transformed and utilized as raw material for new projects, minimizing waste and energy consumption.
