SUMMER SESSIONS: ARCHITECTURE SCHOOLS ENGAGING, INNOVATING, and CHANGING THE FIELD
This event is part of Summer Sessions, a forum that will bring together architecture faculty from across Boston to discuss pedagogies and how their students, courses, and schools are engaging with, innovating in, and changing the field of architecture. This series is meant for students, faculty, practicing architects and firm leaders, and all those interested in what architectural education in Boston is today and how it might affect the field tomorrow.
Material selection and techniques of making requires an elegant balance of risk and certainty. When one is confronted with the choice of materials and techniques of making, the intersections of aesthetics, fabrication techniques, material science, environmental impact, construction sequencing, tolerances, and embedded energy must all be factored into the decision. This Summer Session brings together creatives and teachers to discuss the potentials of materials and “making”.
