About this Event

$10 suggested donation at the door. Includes wine.

Architects Ann Lui and Craig Reschke, founders of Future Firm, will lecture on Tuesday, April 14, as part of MAS Context’s 2020 Spring Talks series. The lecture will take place at the Society of Architectural Historians (1365 N Astor St, Chicago, IL 60610).

Future as Practice: Spaces of Collectivity

In political theorist Hannah Arendt’s description of the “public sphere,” she cites the relational qualities of a dining table. The dining table both brings us together and also negotiates that togetherness through architectural properties: standardized dimensions, divergent forms, and specific materiality. Subsequently, similar sites of collectivity—from the table to the city—become useful for both understanding conditions of the status quo and presenting opportunities for intervention. In this lecture, Future Firm will discuss recent explorations of spaces of collectivity in exhibitions, buildings, and speculative urban proposals. Through these works, Future Firm will present an approach to professional architectural practice informed by thinking about the future of relationality: bringing together the design of buildings with the design of different discursive collaborations and encounters.
