Lecture: Francois Charbonnet


We are excited to announce this addition to our 2019-20 Event Series. Please join us for a lecture with Francois Charbonnet, Founding Partner of Made in, on Monday, October 21 at 6:30 PM.

Since its foundation in 2003, Made in has been active in competitions, construction and research projects. With offices in Geneva and Zurich, Made in is active on both national and international levels, developing proposals in urban contexts, complex infrastructures and demanding programs of all scale and nature. The embedding in a humanistic environment and the critical questioning of today’s construction tasks are of central importance. The socio-cultural relevance of the architect’s tasks in the urban context are always precisely analysed in the light of their permanent change. The interaction between a site, a specific client and a dynamic environment opens possibilities of innovative programmatic solutions that have built the core of Made in’s proposals. Beyond their ongoing engament as founding partners of the architectural practice, Patrick Heiz and François Charbonnet devote themselves intensively to academical research and teaching. After numerous guest professorships in Switzerland and abroad, they have integrated the ETH Zurich since 2018 as full professors.


All lectures take place at 6:30 PM in the Decafé at Perloff Hall on UCLA's Westwood campus in Los Angeles.

Short-term parking options are available in lots and structures located throughout campus. For more parking information, visit UCLA Transportation.
