Alumni Organize Conference


UCLA Alumni Kristy Balliet (M.Arch. II '04), Kelly Bair (M.Arch. I '05), Adam Fure (M.Arch. I '06), and Kyle Miller (M.Arch. I '08) have organized, while Alumni Ellie Abrons (M.Arch. I '06), Brennan Buck (M.Arch. I '04), David Freeland (M.Arch. I '04), Andrew Holder (M.Arch. I '05), and Michael Loverich (M.Arch. II '07) will lead workshops for The Possible Mediums conference in Columbus, Ohio from February 7-10.

The Possible Mediums conference is composed of a series of workshops and panel discussions revolving around four “possible mediums.” Challenging the boundaries of architectural convention, the invited workshop leaders employ exploratory processes rooted in mediums external to the discipline (such as film or comics) or developed from atypical applications of more conventional mediums (such as drawings or models). The technical sophistication and inventive applications of their work reflect two major developments within speculative architecture of the past decade: a broad diffusion of technological expertise and a shift from critical to projective theory. Preserving commitment to expertise and imagination, Possible Mediums places this group of designers in productive dialog, unpacking their collective foundations and futures.
