In conjunction with the Graham Foundation’s current exhibition, “Everything Loose Will Land,” curated by Sylvia Lavin, L.A.-based architect and designer Jason Payne will explore hybridity, chance, and “looseness,” and discuss how these concepts have informed his own experimental design work.
Jason Payne is associate professor of architecture at University of California Los Angeles and Principal of Hirsuta. He received his BArch from Southern California Institute of Architecture and his MS in Advanced Architectural Design from Columbia University. Prior to founding Hirsuta in 2008 he worked as project designer for Reiser + Umemoto/RUR Architects and Daniel Libeskind Studio and partnered on the award-winning office Gnuform. He has held teaching positions at Southern California Institute of Architecture, The Ohio State University, Rice University, Pratt Institute, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and Bennington College.
