Finding Home:
Architecture's Long Journey

September 2, 2023 (Saturday)

          2:00–3:30pm Eastern Time (UTC-5:00)

          1:00–2:30pm Central Time (UTC-6:00)

Presenter: David Wang, Ph.D.

From our house to the Bauhaus; from our church to St. Peter's; from our garden to Versailles; architecture is obsessed about finding home. This short presentation considers the long journey from Pastoral Paradise to Urban Paradise, and the architectures we experience along the way. One teaser: over the course of this long journey, architecture has always been about the disappearance of materiality (e.g., walls and roofs and REI tents), so that man and nature can be one again, without the need for "shelter." This desire in all people is fundamentally a holy desire. What does this mean for an architecture of virtual connectivity?
