Spring 2018 LA Metro Lecture:
Form:uLA - Bryan Cantley

Thursday, May 31 at 6:30 - 8:30pm
Helms Bakery District, 8745 Washington Blvd., Culver City, CA

Form:uLA is an experimental design practice owned by Bryan Cantley that attempts to blur the indeterminate zone between architecture and its representation. 

An alumnus of UCLA, Bryan has lectured at a number of architecture schools internationally, and has taught as visiting faculty at SCI-Arc and Woodbury. 

The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art purchased eleven of Bryan's models and drawings in 2001 as a part of their permanent collection. He is also the recipient of a Graham Foundation Grant (2002) and has held a solo exhibition and served as the International Guest Lecturer at the Bartlett School of Architecture in 2008 and 2017. Cantley's work has been exhibited at the SFMOMA, UNCC, and UCLA, among other institutions.

""Spring 2018 Hearst Lecture Series:
Jennifer Bonner of MALL, Boston

Friday, June 1 at 5:00pm
Business Rotunda (03-213)

Born in Alabama, Jennifer Bonner founded MALL a creative practice for art and architecture in 2009. MALL stands for Mass Architectural Loopty Loops or Maximum Arches with Limited Liability—an acronym with built-in flexibility. MALL’s work can be characterized as recursive, with interests in challenging typology. By engaging “ordinary architecture” such as gable roofs and everyday materials, Bonner playfully reimagines architecture in her field.

Spring 2018 LA Metro Lecture:
Forward-slash/Back-slash\ - Christoph Kumpusch

Saturday, June 2
5:00PM Exhibition and Reception
Lecture and Discussion at 6:00 - 7:00pm
Helms Bakery District, 8745 Washington Blvd., Culver City, CA

Christoph A. Kumpusch is a New York-based architect and the Core I Coordinator at Columbia GSAPP, where he also directs the Extraction Laboratory and teaches design and visual studies.

Kumpusch is the director of Forward-slash (/), a multidisciplinary practice founded in 2008, and the head of Back-slash (\), the experimental arm of Forward-slash (/), investigating technology and material effects on form and tectonics. Kumpusch grounds his work in a concentrated research program focused on architectural details and the spawning of new buildings from the smallest parts outward. A theoretical project runs parallel to this work, identifying historical and cultural contexts triggered by detail innovation. The office is both a design and publishing outfit -- producing essays, books, exhibitions, installations, podcasts, performances, films, and buildings. Forward-slash (/) strives to be intellectually rigorous, materially sustainable, and socially responsible.
