Please join Jinhee Park’s lecture “Micro-Urbanism” at the University of New Mexico School of Architecture and Planning.
The School of Architecture and Planning has strong historic ties with both the College of Engineering and the College of Fine Arts on the main campus. It has been educating architects since the early part of the twentieth century. The mission of the architecture program is to investigate critically the architectural systems and social forces that define sustainable built environments both locally and globally, while honoring cultural identities through teaching, research and practice (quote from UNM SAAP website).
Lecture Summary: The topic, Micro-Urbanism, is about new modes of operation in the city and architecture’s ability to change the way we live and work. ‘Micro’ is not necessarily about size, but more about relativity between program, perception, and questioning the various elements of architecture in essential scale. The concept will be demonstrated in a series of design projects.
When: Jan. 27, 2017 Friday, 5:30 p.m.
