The Birth – Part 2 is the second of two conversations exposing deeper investigations into Hip-Hop Architecture. Each speaker will discuss the origins of their association with the architectural movement and share projects and ideas connected with their work in the exhibition. This panel will feature Los Angeles-based artist Lauren Halsey, whose early education in architecture and identification with hip-hop culture now guide her large-scale urban installations, along with University of Cincinnati Assistant Professor Stephen Slaughter, one of three professors currently teaching courses on Hip-Hop Architecture. Syracuse Architecture Assistant Professor Lawrence Chua, PhD, who writes about hip-hop and Modernism, will moderate the session.

This is a program of Close to the Edge: The Birth of Hip Hop Architecture.
