ANDREW ZAGO AND LAURA BOUWMAN 10-26-16 - The Howard Friedman Visiting Professor Arch Lecture Series
Zago Architecture brings open-ended, creative inquiry to disciplinary concerns in architecture. Noted for its prescient articulation of emerging sensibilities, the practice weds quasi-autonomous aesthetic studies to the art of making buildings and cities. In doing so, Zago Architecture reaffirms the substantial and productive link amongst art, architecture and urbanism. Zago Architecture, Inc is based in Los Angeles. The firm has completed projects in the US and Korea and its work has appeared internationally in books, professional journals and reviews. Notable among the firm’s projects are the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, the Fine Venture Office Tower, completed in association with Yamasaki Associates, Korea and a design studio facility for Cornell University’s Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. In 2005 a book on the firm’s work, Zago Architecture and Office dA : Two Installations was published by the SCI-Arc press. In 2011 Zago Architecture was selected to participate in a workshop and exhibition at MoMA titled “Foreclosed: Rehousing the American Dream.” Andrew Zago and Laura Bouwman are the Fall 2016 Howard Friedman Visiting Professors of Practice.
