In this eleventh episode of GSAPP Conversations, Kate Orff joins Dean Amale Andraos to discuss what it means to think across scales and connect our human life with the geological time scale, how traveling international studios allow students to better address challenges shared by otherwise very different cities, and teaching the reciprocity of physical design and social context.
“We are teaching our students very differently now, because they need to be able to operate differently in light of not only climate change, but also in light of very different political and social systems that characterize the urban context.”
From the MacArthur Foundation: Kate Orff is designing adaptive and resilient urban habitats and encouraging residents to be active stewards of the ecological systems underlying our built environment.
The MacArthur Fellowship is a $625,000, no-strings-attached grant for individuals who have shown exceptional creativity in their work and the promise to do more.
