Visiting Scholar Seminar: Tamar Zinguer

The Degree Zero of Architecture
Seminar, in English, Shaughnessy House, 10 July 2014, 6PM

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.

Tamar Zinguer is Associate Professor at the Cooper Union in New York City. She holds a professional degree in architecture from The Cooper Union in 1989, a master’s in architecture from the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology in 1998, and a doctorate from Princeton University School of Architecture in 2006. Zinguer has practiced architecture in Israel and the United States, and has taught design, as well as history and theory seminars in architecture schools since 1994.
