Piet Eckert, EA2: Strategic Methodologies
Thursday, October 31 | 6:30PM | Frederick P. Rose Auditorium
Architecture may react to a context that is increasingly driven by the massive impact of social, political, economic, and ecological factors, attempting to maintain a singular sense of cohesion. The contradictory has become the contemporary program of our discipline. A strategic organization of space is one that mixes elements, value systems, and action logic. It opens up a combination of essential incoherencies. The target of strategic architecture is to manage the coexistence of conflicting values.

This event is free and open to the public.
