UC Placemaking Features Brooklyn Architect
UC Placemaking presents Eric Bunge of Brooklyn based nARCHITECTS as part of the Placemaking speaker series on Feb. 5 at 6 p.m. The event is free and open to the public with a reception to follow.
Is architecture inherently complete? Or is it a state of incompletion and seeming inadequacy that incites us to imagine architecture as an armature for an ever-changing daily life? Across a range of buildings, public spaces, and ephemeral installations, nARCHITECTS argues for the formal and social potential of an architecture that remains somehow incomplete and ambiguously perceived—or in the architects’ words, Almost Buildings.
WHEN: 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM PST
WHERE: Andrews Conference Room, SS&H Room 2203
