Culture of IDEAS Lecture Series
Organized by Professor Greg Lynn these lecturers show that an engagement with popular and commercial culture combined with a specific critical vision yields not only relevant design work, but more importantly, creative and innovative design.  By focusing on contemporary issues of experience, technology, craft, urbanism or commerce the role of the architect is expanded and empowered in new ways by these lecturers. Presenters will return to UCLA in June to participate in our annual RUMBLE symposium.
**** The UCLA Department of Architecture and Urban Design Distinguished Alumni Lecture series features renowned graduates whose innovation and accomplishments have significantly impacted the field of architecture and or urban design.

Currents: SUPRASTUDIO Interface Interlace
September 27 – December 13, 2013
Opening reception: Friday, September 27, 2013 | 6pm – 8pm
UCLA’s M.Arch. II program, SUPRASTUDIO, launches at IDEAS satellite campus in Playa Vista in Fall 2013, with studios led by Frank Gehry, Greg Lynn, and Thom Mayne. To expand the boundaries of architectural practice, a new research based focus was developed, utilizing architecture education as a platform to advance experimentation and cross-disciplinary collaboration among professors, students, and industry partners. The summer studio Interface Interlace, led by IDEAS Technology Director Guvenc Ozel, investigates the merger between the digital and the physical realms through an exploration of three modes of architectural thinking: translation, iteration, and animation. Divided into three modules and led by the individual SUPRASTUDIO instructor, students engaged in a thorough urban analysis of the Los Angeles River as its unifying context.
