The Paris Atelier – Architect as Critical Maker
Held in Paris from June 3 until July 15, 2013 with visiting artist Tomas Saraceno
The Paris Atelier is an advanced academic program that endeavors to provide a platform to explore the role of the Architect as a Critical Maker – a designer and artist of tangible objects that explore the role of architecture in contemporary culture while engaging the reality of design and construction. As part of the coursework, the Paris Atelier lecture series will address economic, cultural, social strategies in relation to production techniques within the art world and their role in museums, galleries, web-based art, auction houses, etc. Study will be integrated through a hands-on project focused on producing an exhibition of the participant’s design work.
