This lecture is co-sponsored by the AIA East Tennessee.
Jeffery Day is presenting his lecture on, “Whichcraft”, September 21. The lecture will discuss craft, tolerance, and conflicting expectations within a range of projects by Actual Architecture Co. and the student design-build practice, FACT. Architecture occupies an interesting position in this discourse – architects have a kind of craftsmanship that defines how they work – disciplinary-specific design and representational techniques – but they also engage other craftspeople to realize our creations. Architects must select the category of craftsmanship that is not only appropriate to the practical task at hand but also matched to our cultural expectations as represented in the project.
This lecture is funded by the Robert B. Church III Memorial Lecture Fund.
