Our 2020-2021 Lecture Series continues on Nov. 2, 6:30 p.m. ET, with a lecture featuring V. Mitch McEwen, assistant professor of Architecture, Princeton University. McEwen is the co-founder of Atelier Office, an architecture collaborative of studios in Detroit, Los Angeles and Brooklyn. Her work has been awarded multiple grants and commissioned by the U.S. Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale.

From 15 years of work, this lecture, HAPTICALITY, OR LOVE, collects techniques, experiments, and projects that McEwen considers worth your consideration, as part of a larger brewing collective potential toward an architecture of American cities, of the Black diaspora, of the nightlife, of the undercommons.  The title of the lecture borrows from Fred Moten, who considers hapticality a sense of the undercommons– “a way of feeling through others, a feel for feeling others feeling you.”  The work presented ranges from museum installations to self-initiated projects in Detroit to furniture made with robots.

Get to know V. Mitch McEwen.

This lecture is funded by the Robert B. Church III Memorial Lecture Fund.
