Young has been acclaimed by the BBC, NBC, Wired, Guardian, Time Magazine, and Dazed and Confused, and his work has been collected by institutions, such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Victoria and Albert Museum. He has taught internationally including the Architectural Association and Princeton University and now runs a post-graduate program, Fiction and Entertainment, at the Southern California Institute of Architecture.

The lecture is free and open to the public. It offers continuing education units and will be streamed live.

In addition to the lecture, Young will exhibit Oct. 10-30 at UT’s Ewing Gallery, located in the Art + Architecture Building.
