Join us for a discussion with Yona Friedman, architect, and Kenneth Frampton, Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation. 

Yona Friedman (born 1923) is a Hungarian-born French architect. Starting in 1958 with his manifesto “L’ Architecture Mobile” he has formulated and championed the idea that the inhabitant should be the sole conceptor of his own living premises. His theories influenced avant-garde groups like the Japanese Metabolists, Archigram and many more. His drawings and models are part of the permanent collections at the MOMA in NYC, the Pompidou Center in Paris, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the MAXXI in Rome and the Getty Institute in Los Angeles which holds his original archives. He has taught at MIT, Harvard, Princeton, Columbia, UCLA and Berkeley and other institutions. Yona Friedman also works for the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), through which he publishes reports such as No Cost Housing and Survival Techniques (1977). In the early 1980s, he founded the Communication Centre of Scientific Knowledge for Self-Reliance, which is part of the United Nations University in Paris. At the age of 96 he continues to create, inspire and teach a new generation of researchers and architects.
