UCLA AUD Fall 2022 Lecture Series: Germane Barnes
October 19, 2022, 6:30 PM
Germane Barnes’ award-winning research and design practice, Studio Barnes, investigates the connection between architecture and identity, examining architecture’s social and political agency through historical research and design speculation. Mining architecture’s social and political agency, he examines how the built environment influences black domesticity. Barnes is also an Assistant Professor and the Director of The Community Housing & Identity Lab (CHIL) at the University of Miami School of Architecture. His work has been featured in a variety of international institutions and platforms; last year, Barnes won the 2021 Architectural League Prize, the 2021 Wheelwright Prize, and the 2021-2022 Rome Prize in Architecture, among other honors.
Born in Chicago, Illinois, Germane Barnes received a Bachelor's of Science in Architecture from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a Master of Architecture from Woodbury University where he was awarded the Thesis Prize for his project Symbiotic Territories: Architectural Investigations of Race, Identity, and Community. His work has been featured in international institutions most notably, The Museum of Modern Art NY, San Francisco MoMA, LACMA, Chicago Architecture Biennial, MAS Context, The Graham Foundation, The New York Times, Architect Magazine, DesignMIAMI/ Art Basel, Metropolis Magazine, Domus, Wallpaper* Magazine, and The National Museum of African American History where he was identified as one of the future designers on the rise.
