Architecture, Land, Ground

Thu, Oct 27, 2022    12pm

Modern architecture’s social aspirations always seemed to require a lot of land—this is one of its most mixed legacies. In this conversation, architects Tatiana Bilbao (Tatiana Bilbao Estudio), Michael Meredith (MOS Architects) and Gary Leggett (Leggett & Cahuas) compare notes on recent and current projects in Mexico, Paraguay, and Peru that cover vast ground. They will address the formal and social possibilities that are opened by large-scale buildings in these different social and political contexts, including land-intensive housing projects, parks, and long-distance works such as pilgrimage routes.

Organized as one of the “Conversations on Architecture and Land in and out of the Americas” by the Temple Hoyne Buell Center for the Study of American Architecture at GSAPP.

This event will be held in person and on Zoom. Please email buellcenter@columbia.edu to RSVP, or register for the Zoom link here.
