On Friday, February 13, 2015 I will team with Eryk "The Arch-E-Tect" Christian to deliver a lecture at University of Wisconsin Milwaukee's School of Architecture and Urban Planning titled, "LeCorbusier, The Forefather of Hip Hop?". The lecture focuses on the subconscious contributions of famed architects and urban planners to the environments which necessitated the birth of hip hop culture. This lecture will culminate with urban culture’s influence on the architectural profession through three interconnected realms: academic research, professional practice and media, ultimately introducing a new architectural style, one inspired by hip hop culture.
I'm looking forward to a diverse group of attendees which includes students, faculty and community members. The Milwaukee American Institute of Architects has shared the lecture announcement on the AIA Milwaukee's Calendar of Events and a local college has signed up to charter a bus of over 50 prospective architectural students to the event along with its current students and staff.
If you or someone you know are in the Milwaukee area, feel free to invite them to the lecture. Below is a link to download the poster.
