A Conversation with Kenneth Frampton: Where Is the Critical Voice in Architecture Today?

Conversation, In English, Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Toronto, 7 April 2017, 6:30pm

Kenneth Frampton (Columbia University) discusses the role of critical reflection on architecture with Craig Buckley (Yale University) and Keller Easterling (Yale University). What is the role of the editor or critic in the context of a general fatigue associated with the mediatization of architecture? Within this milieu, how can architecture reclaim its role in producing compelling imaginaries that become catalysts for debate?

This conversation is preceded by another in Montreal on 6 April featuring Frampton, Esra Ackan, and Mark Jarzombek. These events are a joint initiative of the Canadian Centre for Architecture and the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design, University of Toronto.

Registration is required. Please visit the Daniels Faculty of Architecture website for details.
