Description

MIT Department of Architecture
Turning Points in Architecture, Design, and Research
April 13, 2019, 9 AM - 6 PM
MIT Media Lab, E14, 6th Floor

MIT President Rafael Reif described the "ubiquity of computing and the rise of AI" as a "turning point" that prompted the recent establishment of the new College of Computing at MIT. As MIT celebrates 150 years of architecture education and the School of Architecture and Planning plans its move to the MET Warehouse, we pause to reflect on the present and project futures for education, practice, and research at this critical juncture. Turning Points is an opportunity to reflect, individually and collectively, on the status and stakes of architecture, design, and research. As thinking of the future is always part of an architect's task, we come together to discuss crucial and necessary moments of change, past and present.
