    Pratt Sessions 01.
    brooklyn NEW YORK

    The Pratt Sessions are a new format of lecture organized by the GAUD to encourage student participation in a discussion oriented format. Seen as a “distributed symposium” each session brings together two participants; one regionally based and one non-regionally based. Participants will frame their work (or a portion of it) around a disciplinary subject/provocation. . . . The first session brings together Meejin Yoon (Principal Höweler + Yoon Architecture [Boston] and Chair, MIT) and Marcelo Spina (Principal, Patterns and Instructor, SCI-Arc)

    Pratt Institute
    critic: Nate HUME.

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    Zherui WANG: This house speculates on domestic living and its relationship, in the near future, to air.
