Jeremy Smith will present a lecture at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 8, in Ken and Linda Sue Shollmier Hall, Room 250 of Vol Walker Hall, on the U of A campus, as part of the spring lecture series in the Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design.
Smith, FNZIA, is the design director at Irving Smith Architects in Nelson, New Zealand. The research-based practice works in sensitive environments throughout New Zealand and abroad.
In his lecture, “Soft Architecture, Being Finished is Finished; Recent Unfinished Works,” Smith will examine the question: “When is being finished, finished?” He will discuss a house alteration project he completed on one of his previous designs after a cyclone cleared trees around it in the forest. His adventure of alteration, research and teaching led to international awards, speaking, exhibition and judging engagements, and teaching engagements around the world.
Smith is the 2023 John G. Williams Distinguished Visitor in Architecture.
This lecture is free and open to the public. Seating is limited.
