Control Societies Speaker Series: V. Mitch McEwen, Princeton University

About the Talk

Within An Office, our architecture and urban design work is largely sited in majority black cities and/or immigrant contexts. In this work, we attempt to expand architecture’s relationship to social codes and material facts, disregarding the augmented reality of type. Projects, at different scales, deploy algorithms for designing a hunch of what might exist, what might remain of patterns built into the city, rather than a definite object. Design becomes a way of seeing what already exists, not only a means to master or shape something.

MARC Works-in-Progress Workshop with Ryan Tsapatsaris

The Works-in-Progress series is a way to offer a supportive, informal, and interdisciplinary space for graduate students and faculty working at the intersections of media and social movements to present their ideas and get feedback. The works range from papers to presentations, job talks, films, podcasts, or art projects. The work can cover a specific topic or your broader research interests and can be at any stage of development.

Lunch will be provided. 

Presenter: Ryan Tsapatsaris
