"If the content is there, then you don't need to hide behind the language." -- Jeannette Kuo
For roughly 60 minutes, guest lecturer Jeannette Kuo and host Justin McElderry talk about why it's important for designers to move beyond using esoteric, architectural lingo. Specifically, we discuss how reversing this perception begins with clear, and direct explanations of work.
Some of the topics we cover include:
Jeannette is co-founding partner of Zurich-based Karamuk Kuo Architects and Assistant Professor-in-Practice of Architecture at Harvard Graduate School of Design. Her research and work focus on the intersection of structures, space, and culture.
From multi-unit housing to cultural infrastructures like the Augusta Raurica Archaeological Center, the work of the office spans across scales and typologies, each time looking for spatial and conceptual opportunities within the constraints of reality. Recent built works include the International Sports Sciences Institute in Lausanne and the Weiden Secondary School.
Publications include the two-volume research on workspace typologies: A-Typical Plan (2013) and Space of Production (2015), as well as the recent El Croquis 161 monograph on Karamuk Kuo.
