Archi-Salon: Inside Studio Gang Architects

February 2, 2013
Galleries 283–285
Free with museum admission

Roundtable Discussion: From Outside the Discipline
Outside research is finding new influence within the discipline of architecture. This salon 
explores the influence of inquiries into topics not typically associated with the field. Presentations and discussion with invited contributors and panelists will explore the different ways research, ranging from the study of logistical networks to the air we breathe to the infrastructure of resource extraction to a self-organizing village, is being deployed as a design tool and the resulting implications for architectural practice.
