People Talking About Architecture – 02.14.2006

Harvard:
Michelle Provoost – (Untitled Lecture)
6:00 PM - Gund Hall Piper Auditorium
Harvard’s visiting scholar will speak about what he’s studying.

University of Toronto:
Diane Lewis - Eros and Psyche: Architecture
The namesake of Diane Lewis Architects will deliver a lecture to honor her post as the Frank Gehry International Visiting Chair in Architectural Design. The lecture seems named for the special day -- hopefully her story will have a better ending (Here's a short speech she gave last year at the Architecture League).

Architectural Association:
David Adjaye - Making Public Buildings: Specificity, Imbrication, Customisation
6.30 PM - Lecture Hall (36 Bedford Square, London)
The founding partner at Adjaye Associates will present several building projects to test these questions... “What is ‘public’ at the beginning of the 21st century? What is the nature of public space and what is the role of public buildings today? Are traditional models still relevant in the urban fabric today? How does building technology play its part?” The man is getting a lot of press lately.
