4/9 - The Soft
Architect, Kennedy & Violich Architecture, Boston
In the Spring term of 2014, the Princeton School of Architecture will continue the series of lectures and public debates about the aesthetics of the Rarefied: what is the architecture that grows in a resource-depleted environment? Rarefied aims to capture an environment, an atmosphere of asphyxia which surrounds a practice driven by the lack of financial credit and natural resources. Which are the practices and the aesthetics that will succeed these decades of excess, and the architecture that results from them?
The Rarefied sessions are set in a round-table format where speakers join Princeton SoA faculty members and selected graduate students in a studio-like environment. The lectures will be streamed online for the general public from the Princeton School of Architecture home page. Every session will be focused on a particular modality of the Rarefied.
