Nader TEHRANI speaks on developing a discursive academic culture at MIT, the democratization of education and disappearance of master-student hierarchies enabled by new technologies, being mindful of architecture’s “domain of expertise,” and much more.
The lecture will address two modes of architectural production, from configurative to figurative practices, using installations, built and unbuilt projects as part of the presentation.
Nader Tehrani is a Principal and Founder of NADAAA, a practice dedicated to the advancement of design innovation, inter-disciplinary collaboration and an intensive dialogue with the construction industry. He also is a Professor and the Head of the Department of Architecture at MIT School of Architecture and Planning.
