with Mark Lee and Sharon Johnston, Creative Directors, 2017 Chicago Architecture Biennale, Make New History; Principals, JohnstonMarkLee Los Angeles
Moderator: Michael Osman, UCLA A.UD Associate Professor
One binding interest of the UCLA participants is the medium of the model. Whereas the model is often taken as a technique for design, localized in the architect’s studio or workshop, the models made by the A.UD faculty deviate from that singular purpose. Some are models of models, other are models of photographs, and still others are models of existing buildings transformed into concepts. This roundtable event will discuss these commonalities and the relationship of the participants’ work to the Biennial theme.
