Visiting Architecture Lecturer Perry Kulper, "Saturated Evacuations"


Saturated Evacuations will consider two seemingly opposite approaches to

architectural production...saturation, or, thickening and evacuation, or

erasure. Neither mutually exclusive, nor joined at the hip, forms of

saturation and erasure challenge the protected terrains of spatial topology

while feasting on what is discovered in the acts of (un)making.


Perry Kulper is an architect and Associate Professor of Architecture at the

University of Michigan. Previously he taught at SCI-Arc in Los Angeles for

16 years as well as holding visiting positions at the University of

Pennsylvania and Arizona State University. A graduate of CalPoly and

Columbia University, he has worked in the offices of Eisenman/Robertson,

Robert A.M. Stern and Venuri, Rauch and Scott Brown. His interests include

the roles of representation and methodologies in the production of

architecture and in broadening the conceptual range by which architecture

contributes to our cultural imagination.
