BOSTON, Sept. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Thom Mayne, a Pritzker prize–winning architect and an American Institute of Architects' Gold Medalist, is speaking at The Boston Architectural College (BAC) on Wednesday, September 28 as part of the school's lecture series: Spectra, Space, Dimension.
Mayne is a founder and principal of Morphosis, an architectural firm with offices in Los Angeles and New York, and is also a founder of the highly regarded Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc).
"Thom Mayne has never been a shy architect. His designs mix technological bravura with the kind of urban grit that you associate with [LA]'s sprawling freeways and giant billboards. Yet underneath the tough veneer lies a strong current of social optimism," wrote the New York Times.
Other architects and designers participating in the BAC's fall lecture series are:
Oct. 19: Shauna Gillies-Smith, principal of Ground Inc., whose lecture is titled Rational Exuberance
Nov. 2: Reetika Vijay, managing principal of IA Interior Architects, will speak about Our Human Habitat: Workplace Ecosystems
Nov. 16: Erin Kim, the 2015 recipient of the BAC's John Worthington Ames Scholarship, will speak about Boston's Failed Olympics Bid.
The lectures take place at The Boston Architectural College, 320 Newbury Street in Cascieri Hall from 6 to 7 pm. For more information, visit the-bac.edu.
