The Berlage lecture: Edward Eigen

22 June 2018 12:45 till 13:45 - Location: Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment - By: Communication BK

On 22 June, Edward Eigen, Associate Professor of Architecture and Landscape Architecture at Harvard Graduate School of Design will have a talk with the topic ‘On Accident’.

There is little in general to be said about the topic: On Accident. Therein lies the inviting difficulty. The objects to be investigated (some of them broken, others lost, or merely terminally out of place); the protagonists (by turns unreliable and entirely too authoritative); and the non-straightforward narratives they mutually configure, emerge from, and ultimately recede into distinct settings whose own meanings require special tools to survey and analyse.

The New New

This lecture is part of the Berlage Sessions on scholarly research and critical approaches to contemporary architecture and urban design. Speakers link architectural thinking and practice to the history of ideas and changing sociocultural conditions. Under the theme of “The New New,” this series is examining the future that was once imagined by architects.
