Free and open to the public
Today, at a moment when so many discourses have found their way into the design studio—from complexity theory, bioengineering, and new modes of fabrication to new media and environmental politics—there is much talk about expanding the disciplinary boundaries of architecture. But is there really a unified body of knowledge in architecture? Was there ever one? How was it constituted? On what basis is it being reconstituted? What is the role or agency of the school in this process? A panel discussion moderated by Shantel Blakely, with Joan Ockman and Michael Hays, Eliot Noyes Professor of Architectural Theory at the Harvard GSD.
