Description

CCA's Architecture Lecture Series presents
Prototyping Collective Space
Thursday, March 21, 2019

WeWork Civic Center
1161 Mission Street in SF
6pm

A panel discussion exploring new ways to make architecture, organized in conjunction with the Component/Assembly Advanced Architecture Studio led by Adam Marcus and Matt Hutchinson.

The Case Study House Program (1945-1966) provided a platform for architects to re-conceive domestic living in the era of postwar, industrial mass production. This experiment, melding standardized building materials with a very specific notion of the American nuclear family, helped forge the paradigm of the detached, single-family house that has persisted now for generations. In today’s vastly different cultural, social, and material landscape, contemporary modes of living demand new architectural and spatial arrangements. In the spirit of the Case Study House Program, this panel will explore how new forms of flexible fabrication and mass customization might allow architects and builders to rethink domestic architecture today. What are possible alignments between emerging modes of production and alternative conventions of ownership, shared living, and collective domesticity? How might questions of fabrication and tectonics relate to the balance between working and living, between labor and leisure? How do the politics of customization condition both the making and inhabitation of domestic architecture?
