Remote Zoom Lecture #1: Counterspace
5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Online - Zoom meeting ID 680 517 985
Counterspace are the winners of the 2020 Serpentine Pavilion competition (now postponed), the youngest architects ever to win this prestigious award. Based in Johannesburg, they are a collective studio of young architecture graduates established in 2014 by Sumayya Vally, Sarah de Villiers, and Amina Kaskar. All three combine teaching with practice, teaching at the Graduate School of Architecture (Vally, de Villiers) and Wits University (Kaskar). Their work is predominantly concerned with ideas of the future and of “otherness.” They are dedicated to research-based projects, which take the form of exhibition design, competitions, urban insurgency, and public events.
Hosted by Lesley Lokko.
This event will consist of a pre-recorded, 45-minute video followed by a "live" Q&A with Counterspace. Zoom link: https://ccny.zoom.us/j/680517985 (meeting ID 680 517 985).
