Spring Lecture Series 2018
Architecture & Landscape
The University Architect / Campus Planning and Design Office sponsors a spring lecture series in architecture and landscape architecture. The purpose of the series is to bring together community enthusiasts, students and staff from across different disciplines to hear the latest innovations in building and design. The lectures provide the Bay Area architectural and design communities an opportunity to hear nationally and internationally renowned experts in the field. The lectures are free of charge and open to the public.
At its simplest definition, the Modernist Movement reduced Architectural design down to its essential volumetric expressions – often stripping away the adornment of traditional precedents. While materials and technologies continue to change over time, the strength of pure volumetric expression still yields a poetic and timeless composition. A quiet simplicity reveals conceptual clarity. It delivers an intensely satisfying conclusiveness. Buildings and landscapes are often broken down into a sequence of volumes in order to humanize scale, create visual interest and variety, or choreograph a spatial experience. We have asked our speakers to reflect on the significance of VOLUME in their design approach and across their body of work.
