Organizer/AuthorSarah Owens
David Gissen is a historian, theorist, and designer whose research operates at the intersection of architectural and geographical theory. His recent work specifically focuses on developing a novel concept of nature in architectural thought, specifically what nature might become in architecture, or what architecture might be “after nature.” Following his lecture will be the public reception for Anxious Climate, a touring exhibition that he curated.

Anxious Climate features three groundbreaking architectural firms (R&Sie of Paris, Philippe Rahm of Lausanne and Paris, and AMID [Cero 9] of Madrid) whose work explores the relationship between nature and the built environment and pushes beyond the emerging doctrines of green design. The work challenges accepted ideas of nature and human interaction, creatively imagining what nature might be and how humans might interact with it.
