Current Work is a lecture series featuring leading figures in the worlds of architecture, urbanism, design, and art. This fall and early winter, Current Work spotlights influential and innovative design practices that bring widely varying perspectives to contemporary housing challenges.
Over decades, the architects Anne Lacaton and Jean Philippe Vassal have collaborated on design and research projects with their long-time friend Frédéric Druot. Together, they have redefined the possibilities of social housing, sustainability, and community agency.
Lacaton, Vassal, and Druot have partnered on several landmark housing projects, guided by the commitment: “never demolish, never remove or replace, always add, transform, and reuse!” Simultaneously sparing and transformative, their work adapts existing structures to meet the needs of contemporary urban communities.
The lecture will be offered both in-person and online. This program is free and open to all; Learn more and register: https://archleague.org/event/a...
This event is co-sponsored by AIA New York and The Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture of The Cooper Union.
