Each Friday at 4pm during the term, the students, faculty and community of the Portland State University School of Architecture converge on the Shattuck Hall Annex to hear the remarks of notable architects, artists, designers, landscape architects, academics and fellow students about their work in their respective fields.
Philip Speranza, practicing architect and Assistant Professor at University of Oregon, will be joining us at Fridays@4 for a lecture and discussion. Assistant Professor Philip Speranza is a practicing architect and directs the Life, City, Adaptation: Barcelona program in landscape urbanism at University of Oregon. In his research, teaching and design, Speranza seeks to understand how design can support urban participation across time while it also reflects and strengthens local identity. Speranza has worked in the offices of Steven Holl in New York and Carlos Ferrater in Barcelona and with Carlos Zapata, and he has created urban design projects, civic art installations, infrastructure, mixed-use developments and private homes in the US and Spain. His work has been featured in publications locally and abroad, including Architectural Record, Arts Journal, New York Construction, Urbanland Magazine, Sculpture Magazine, Public Art Review, Newsweek and Publico (Portugal).
