On Monday, October 22, Join AIA Southern Arizona and the University of Arizona College of Architecture, Planning, and Landscape Architecture at 6:00 PM the Cultures of Place lecture “Abstraction and Light: A Meditation on the Alhambra,” presented by William Curtis.
The 2018-2019 School of Architecture Lecture Series will train attention on the ways we define “place”. Experience of place springs simultaneously from sensual perception of the environment and our ecological habitat and from the cultural constructions of our social milieu, including cultures of building and making. “Place” may occur for us in nature, in the city, or in our professional lives. Join us for a thorough examination of the places each of us inhabits, the cultures that condition and interpret them, and the role architecture can play as a lens onto our world and a portal to the future.
