Location: Architecture Hall 147, UW Campus
Join us for a lecture with Marion Weiss, FAIA, and Michael Manfredi, FAIA of WEISS/MANFREDI Architecture/Landscape/Urbanism. Weiss/Manfredi are the designers of the Olympic Sculpture Park. Their multidisciplinary design practice is based in New York City. The Natural world and the Constructed world are increasingly interconnected, challenging conventions of public and private, temporal and permanent.
The lecture will discuss these dynamic, evolving issues in the context of recent national and international projects by Weiss/Manfredi, including the Creative Arts Center for Barnard College, waterfront parks for New York and St. Louis, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden visitor center in New York City, and Taekwondo Park in Korea. This lecture is co-sponsored by the Seattle Art Museum.
