Visiting Scholar Tamar Zinguer presents her research:
This talk explores the attraction that the quantitatively precise literary term “degree zero” holds. Through a selection of historic references to the “zero degree” in and about architecture, the talk articulates a plurality of zeroes and different modalities of nothingness as they apply to the discipline of architecture.
