Samford University Department of Architecture & Interior Design
  November 16, 2023 6:00 PM

Doors Open: 5:30 PM

INDIVIDUAL Public Onsale: August 28, 2023 2:56 PM to November 16, 2023 6:15 PM
Marlon Blackwell will discuss his architecture and design process and will introduce 'Radical Practice: The Work of Marlon Blackwell Architects', a new monograph released in June 2022 by Princeton Architectural Press. Both the book and the lecture emphasize projects in the public and civic realm, emerging from outside the established centers of architectural culture, illustrating the distinct and original voice of Marlon Blackwell Architects. Their iconic and award-winning designs span across typologies, scales and budgets, by merging the universal language of architecture and the particulars of place. The lecture will discuss the richness of the work, its methods, and its consequences and suggest an open-endedness, at once generous and provocative, to the practice's trajectory and interest in what a "radical practice" can be in the contemporary moment. A core principle at the heart of the practice, radical in its fundamental simplicity, is the assertion of the making of buildings and places as a constant authentic focus.
