The Boston Architectural College invites the community to join us for Multiple Agendas, a public lecture by Thom Mayne on Thursday, November 16, 2017, at 6 pm in Cascieri Hall.

Thom Mayne founded Morphosis as a collective architectural practice engaged in cross-disciplinary research and design. As design director and thought leader of Morphosis, Mayne provides overall vision and project leadership to the firm. With permanent offices in Los Angeles and New York City, the firm currently employs over 50 architects and designers.

Mayne's distinguished honors include the Pritzker Prize (2005) and the AIA Gold Medal (2013). He was appointed to the President's Committee on the Arts and Humanities in 2009 and was honored with the American Institute of Architects Los Angeles Gold Medal in 2000. With Morphosis, Thom Mayne has been the recipient of 25 Progressive Architecture Awards, over 100 American Institute of Architecture Awards, and numerous other design recognitions. Under Mayne's direction, the firm has been the subject of various group and solo exhibitions throughout the world, including a large solo exhibition at the Centre Pompidou in Paris in 2006, the Contemporary Art Center in Cincinnati, the Walker Arts Institute in Minneapolis, and a major retrospective at the Netherlands Architectural Institute in 1999.
