Toshiko Mori will present a lecture at 4:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 14, in Ken and Linda Sue Shollmier Hall, Room 250 of Vol Walker Hall, on the U of A campus, as part of the fall lecture series in the Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design.

Mori is the principal of Toshiko Mori Architect and is the Robert P. Hubbard Professor in the Practice of Architecture at Harvard University Graduate School of Design.

In her lecture, “Observations,” Mori will explore how architecture first takes the form of thoughts and concepts. She will describe how the practice of architecture begins when various, often disparate, reflections are woven into an organized structure to inquire into how buildings might confront complex issues by synthesizing design to unite form, envelope and environment. Architects not only solve problems but also identify them, reducing these to their component parts and observing them from another angle. They must balance ideas with rigorous observation before the designs that they imagine can become a reality.  

This is the Warren Segraves Lecture, sponsored by Modus Studio.

This lecture is free and open to the public. Seating is limited.
