  • John SOUTHERN.
    los angeles CALIFORNIA

    The research of John Southern and his office, Urban Operations, interrogates the sinister contradictions and utopian possibilities present in a world beset by environmental and social decline. Since 9/11, architecture has been distilled into a Supermodernist menu of recombinant formal and material outcomes, while global commerce has simultaneously produced savage anthropomorphic and sociological mutations, resulting in an ephemeral, yet domineering spatial praxis.

    los angeles CALIFORNIA

    Commonly understood today as a set of beliefs or practices in conflict with prevailing dogma, the word “heresy” derives from the Greek “heiresis,” meaning “choice.” In classical antiquity, the term also signified a period during which a young philosopher would examine various schools of thought in order to determine his future way of life.

  • Pier Vittorio AURELI
    los angeles CALIFORNIA

    Pier Vittorio Aureli is an architect and educator. He is the co-founder of Dogma, an architectural studio that focuses on the project of the city. He teaches at the AA and Yale SOA and is the author of The Project of Autonomy and The Possibility of an Absolute Architecture. Aureli’s lecture will trace the development of the architectural project, focusing on the relationship between social and political conflicts and the urge of architecture to tame these conflicts and reform the city. His lecture attempts to situate architecture beyond regressive or progressive terms, as material evidence that the evolution of design has been always the outcome of struggle.

  • discussion: EMBEDDED
    culver city CALIFORNIA

    The LA Forum will host an event marking the publication of P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S’s new book, EMBEDDED, bringing together authors, contributors, mentors and confabulators to discuss some of the most relevant issues haunting contemporary architectural practice and discourse today, such as the perceived divide between progressive design culture, the politics of form and social responsibility. EMBEDDED is P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S’s long awaited book that reflects on the evolution, actualization and conclusion of certain lineages of design and material research, while signaling the initial stages of others.

    EMBEDDED: Marcelo Spina, Georgina Huljich, Marcelyn Gow, Michael Osman, and Todd Gannon
