A series of evening lectures in the fall semester devoted to different styles of architectural practice today.
FROM VISION TO REALITY
In a remarkable career, Aldo Cibic has worked for the designer Ettore Sottsass and with him founded the design team Memphis (1981), a flamboyant reaction to the black boxes of the 1970s. Noted for their humor (the group was named for a Bob Dylan song) they used bright colors and a mixture of styles to great effect. With Cibicworkshop he has worked throughout the world and his interiors (Selfridges, Rinascente, Mövenpick) and projects (Haimen, Danguiyuan) and research projects (Rethinking Happiness and Microrealities) challenge conventional assumptions about design and urbanism.
