The Paul Rudolph Heritage Foundation is pleased to announce our ‘SpaceMaker Salon Series’ to continue a tradition that grew from Paul Rudolph’s desire to encourage debates about important issues surrounding modern architecture.
Our salon will be led by Beatriz Colomina. After Prof. Colomina’s presentation, there will be a conversation between Beatriz Colomina and Andrés Jaque and Ashley Simone.
Every age has its signature afflictions and each affliction has its architecture. This panel will explore the psychopathologies of architecture–from the trauma of tuberculosis to more recent disorders such as burn-out syndrome, ADHD, allergies, and the environmentally hypersensitive unable to live in the modern world. Diagnostic tools from X-Rays to MRIs and beyond radically transformed privacy and publicity in the twentieth century, reshaping architecture. Beatriz Colomina suggests that if we want to talk about the state of architecture today, we should look to the dominant obsessions with illness and the latest techniques of imaging the body—and ask what effects they have on the way we conceive, represent and experience architecture.
Seats for the event are limited, so reserve your place today to ensure your attendance.
Proceeds from this event benefit The Paul Rudolph Heritage Foundation to promote the preservation, knowledge and understanding of the work of architect and educator Paul Rudolph.
