We had a deadline and couldn't make it, but a friend of the office snapped this pic during Session Two: International Practice, Publicity, and Iconicity Provocation. We have no idea what was discussed, or who won the battle this image suggests. Looking forward to seeing the video once it's posted!

Christensen leading Advanced Topic Studio at UCLA by Steven Christensen

Tomorrow is Fall Lottery Day at UCLA, and Steven will be presenting his Advanced Topic Studio entitled Parts & Labor. The studio is open to graduate students in their third and final year of the Master in Architecture I program, and will focus on the manner in which the form and performative roles of the coffer has changed over the last 2000 years in response to transformations in technology and construction methods. Students will speculate on new possibilities for this element that reflect the present material/labor ecology, one that has transformed substantially since the 20th century.
