On Wednesday, October 28, 2015 at 6:00 p.m., Amale Andraos and Dan Wood will deliver a combined lecture as part of the Stuckeman School lecture series. The lecture accompanies an ongoing exhibit of WORKac's project L'Assemblée Radieuse in the Stuckeman School's Rouse Gallery. The lecture and a reception to follow are both free and open to the public.
Amale Andraos is dean of Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation. Andraos has taught at numerous institutions including Princeton, Harvard, the University of Pennsylvania, and the American University in Beirut. Her work has recently explored the question of representation as it impacts global practice by re-examining the concept of the ‘Arab City.’
Dan Wood, AIA, LEED AP, is a principal at WORKac, where he leads projects across the United States as well as in Asia, Africa, and Europe. Wood held the 2013-14 Louis I. Kahn Chair at the Yale School of Architecture and has taught at Princeton, Cooper Union, Columbia, Ohio State, and UC Berkeley, where he was the Friedman Distinguished Chair.
WORKac focuses on developing architectural projects that re-invent the relationship between urban and natural environments. The firm has achieved international recognition for projects such as the Centre de Conferences in Libreville Gabon and the New Holland Island Cultural Center in St Petersburg, Russia. Notable projects include the Diane von Furstenberg Studio HQ in New York’s Meatpacking District, and the Kew Gardens Hills Library in Queens. WORKac recently completed the first Edible Schoolyard in Brooklyn and re-imagined the future of work for the newly renovated Wieden+Kennedy offices in Manhattan.
