While Cornell AAP unfortunately had to suspend its ongoing lecture series, on March 18 2020, Gensler Visiting Critic Jan De Vylder will be presenting his virtual lecture That It Does Not Look Good Makes That It Looks Good simultaneously to the communities of Harvard GSD, Cooper Union, ETH Zurich and Cornell AAP. The talk will be introduced by Assistant Professor Felix Heisel.
Excerpt from the Invitation:
Jan De Vylder and Inge Vinck are cofounders of jan de vylder architecten (2008), architecten de vylder vinck taillieu (2010), and most recently, of architecten jan de vylder inge vinck (A JDVIV).
A JDVIV explores ideas launched at ETH Zurich in the studio series titled Universum Carrousel Journey (UCJ): Universum as a world to be created. Carrousel as ever ongoing. Journey as an exploration.
A JDVIV/UCJ is a multidisciplinary practice in which making and thinking are deeply embedded. New horizons are being explored internationally and in research, and profound positions are being taken, both in the firm’s interest in drawing and also in debating the essence of urgency today.
