Carlos Garciavelez, 2012 Druker Fellow, will present his research in a talk entitled, Form and Pedagogy: The Design of the University City in Latin America. His work explores the architectural and urban legacy of the University Campus Model in the region, which became an epicenter of twentieth-century architectural and urban experimentation, and a unique form of urban development within major Latin American cities. Garciavelez’ research examines the historical evolution of these campuses across Latin America and the diverse design synergies that tie them together. Form and Pedagogy: The Design of the University City in Latin America consolidates each of the singular projects into a de facto Pan-American project, establishing a clear link between design and mid-century national higher education aspirations in the region.
