Making Books Now
Chicago Architecture Biennial Artistic Directors’ Symposium
In conjunction with the Chicago Architecture Biennial, Columbia GSAPP presents a discussion among architects who have reengaged book-making on their own terms to explore the printed book as a vehicle for producing and expressing architectural thought. A series of conversations explores how practicing architects are making new history by making books, by approaching bookmaking as an opportunity to frame their practices, and even thinking of it as an architectural project in and of itself.
Moderated by GSAPP’s Director of Publications James Graham, the event features a series of 20-minute conversations among practices who will engage and respond to one other’s recent publications. The pairs will offer six consecutive thematic discussions based on a shared theme or interest connecting the books and approach to representing their practices.
Speakers Amale Andraos and Dan Wood '92 M.Arch, WORKac Benjamin Aranda '99 M.Arch, Aranda\Lasch David Benjamin '05 M.Arch, The Living Tatiana Bilbao, Tatiana Bilbao Estudio Sarah Dunn '94 M.Arch, UrbanLab Kersten Geers, OFFICE KGDVS Reto Geiser, MG&Co.
