Territory and Form

College of Environmental Design, University of California, Berkeley, 305 Wurster Hall
Berkeley , CA 94720 United States

The majority of architecture and urban design of the twentieth century aimed to tame the contradictory, heterogeneous, and contingent urban environment, both physically as well as socio-politically. Instead, this lecture will present a series of projects that attempt to reconcile and empower the role of architecture within the transforming, evolving, fluctuating, and indeterminate conditions of the city, it’s public sphere, and it’s ecological context through re-evaluating Umberto Eco’s concept of The Open Work. The Open Work straddles the fine line between the individual…

Chicago Architecture Center, 111 East Wacker Dr.
Chicago, IL 60601 United States

In Hong Kong, a network of pedestrian passages connects public and private space in one of the densest cities in the world across a challenging topography. This three-dimensional maze connects train stations, hotels, office towers, and housing estates across boundaries of class and culture; forming an alternative to the colonial logics under which it was founded and governed for most of its history, and grounds for discourse over its political future. In Chicago, the city’s Pedway links residential and commercial…

Silver Lining: New Deal Public Art in Illinois

Chicago Architecture Center, 111 East Wacker Dr.

In 1976, Barbara Bernstein produced a 24-minute film about large-scale public artworks created in Illinois under the sponsorship of the New Deal relief projects. Her film, produced for the U.S. Bicentennial, brought attention to the many beautiful murals painted in Illinois as part of this government employment effort during the 1930s. Now as Illinois celebrates its own Bicentennial, Landmarks Illinois presents a rare screening of this film. Barbara Bernstein will discuss the making of the film and conservator Heather Becker…
