    Location: 

    Gund Hall, Stubbins Room 112, 48 Quincy Street, Cambridge

    “Inner Space” is part of an ongoing research project into the construction of the architectural imagination which the authors have pursued in the last decade through different media. Through a website and a visual atlas (socks-studio.com), an architectural practice (Microcities), teaching activity and the curating of an exhibition at Lisbon Triennale 2019, the authors have set out to investigate the space between inner and outer reality, looking for those moments in which the two realms interact most vividly. This event is free and open to the public.

    Open House Lecture: Frida Escobedo, "Split Subject"

    Location: 

    Harvard Graduate School of Design, Gund Hall, Piper Auditorium, 48 Quincy St., Cambridge

    Please join the Harvard Graduate School of Design for an open house lecture, "Split Subject," with Frida Escobedo. 

    Frida Escobedo is principal and founder of an architecture and design studio based in Mexico City. The projects produced at the studio operate within a theoretical framework that addresses time not as a historical calibration, but rather a social operation. This expanded temporal reading stems directly from Henri Bergson’s notion of ‘social time,’ and is articulated in conceptual works such as the El Eco Pavilion (2010), Split Subject (2013) and Civic Stage...

    The Peril and Promise of Solar Geoengineering

    Location: 

    Geological Lecture Hall, 24 Oxford St., Cambridge

    Solar geoengineering research aims to reduce the impacts of global climate change. One possibility is to put aerosols into the stratosphere to alter Earth’s energy budget. This emerging technology entails risks and uncertainties, along with serious challenges to global governance. The greatest threat, perhaps, is that it will be used as a technical fix and encourage people to avoid the emissions cuts that are fundamental to curbing long-term climate risks.

    Lecturer David Keith will describe the simple physics underlying the climate’s response to stratospheric aerosols, the...

    Anthropology, Colonialism, and the Exploration of Indigenous Australia

    Location: 

    Geological Lecture Hall, 24 Oxford St., Cambridge

    In 1938–1939, Harvard University funded an expedition to Australia aimed at understanding how colonization had affected Indigenous peoples and their physiology, and at informing government policy as it shifted from segregation to assimilation. Led by anthropologists Norman B. Tindale and Joseph Birdsell, the expedition gathered more than 6,000 individual records from Indigenous people on missions and settlements—records that have since inspired community-based research projects and land claims.

    Lecturer Philip Jones will set the expedition within the context of anthropological...
