POSTPONED: Frampton Lecture

This lecture has been rescheduled for September 11,2017.

Anne Lacaton
Response by Kenneth Frampton

Established in Paris in 1987 by Anne Lacaton and Jean-Philippe Vassal, the practice has designed commercial, educational, cultural and residential buildings. A connecting thread across their work is the desire to find what is essential in each situation and to create a modest language of architecture based on an economy of means. Whether it is their celebrated conversion of the Palais de Tokyo or their social housing refurbishments, Lacaton and Vassal make intelligent re-use of the existing, minimizing new building through innovative design, and through an appreciation of the transformative possibilities in each situation.

Anne Lacaton graduated from the Graduated from the School of Architecture of Bordeaux in 1980 and later received a degree in Urban Planning at the university of Bordeaux in 1984. She has been a visiting professor at Harvard GSD, the University of Madrid, EPFL Lausanne, University of Florida, Ivan Smith Studio, University of NY-Buffalo, as the Clarkson Chair, and a resident at the Pavillon Neuflize OBC-Palais de Tokyo, Paris.
