Thu, Sep 29, 2022    1:30pm

Bubble Problems; An Archeology of Infection and Environmental Control

A lecture by Lydia Kallipoliti as part of the 2022 Plein Air Talk series.

Lydia Kallipoliti is an architect, engineer, and scholar whose research focuses on the intersections of architecture, technology, and environmental politics. Kallipoliti is the author ofThe Architecture of Closed Worlds, Or, What is the Power of Shit (Lars Muller/Storefront, 2018), and most recently the co-curator of the 2022 Tallinn Architecture Biennale exploring the theme “Edible; Or, The Architecture of Metabolism.” Kallipoliti is an Associate Professor of Architecture at the Cooper Union in New York, and a principal of research thinktank ANAcycle.

2022 Plein Air Talks is organized in conjunction with the advanced studio series “Plein Air” taught by Nahyun Hwang, initiated in the fall of 2020. The series explores the complex material and socio-political performance of air, and the intersectional vulnerabilities and agencies of air as a critical spatial medium.
