Organized by CCA Architecture faculty members Irene Cheng and Clark Thenhaus, Revelry & Representation is an open forum meant to draw out shared interests, overlaps, and differences within the college and beyond from a variety of positions, topics, and interests. The event will consist of both faculty and student presentations, a collective workshop, a discussion around the workshop work, and a keynote lecture by Sam Jacob.
The event will consist of both faculty and student presentations, a collective workshop, a discussion around the workshop work, and a keynote lecture by Sam Jacob. It will be both a reflection of interests within CCA’s design media and history and theory streams, as well as an exploration of related topics around ‘representation’. We firmly believe that this event will provoke dialogue, reveal shared interests and divergent paths of inquiry, and that it will enrich the collective body of work within our Division.
The event is framed as an investigation into representation and its historical and theoretical contexts and ramifications. It explores CCA Architecture Division’s first annual theme, Representation, by situating design media and history & theory as adjacent, yet distinct mediums of and for architectural intellection, speculation, and experimentation in contemporary architectural discourse, practice, and pedagogy. Revelry and Representation has solicited the participation of all students in the Division that are enrolled in all course.
Sam Jacob, Principal at Sam Jacob Studio and Professor at University of Illinois, Chicago will present the keynote lecture at 6:30pm.
