Alan H. Rider Visiting Critic and Distinguished Lecturer

MAKE IT ALIVE: BEYOND NEW BUILDINGS We do not need any more new buildings. We have enough space, and we cannot afford to use up non-renewable resources in new construction. Instead we need to rebuild, renovate, re-imagine and rethink our existing spaces. This lecture will mine the beauty of gathering and revealing what already is.
