"Placing," Department of Architecture Lecture Series: Lecture by Kevin Daly of Daly Genik Architects

“Architects create places, not spaces.” In the second annual lecture series presented by the Department of Architecture at Portland State University, six internationally renowned leaders from the fields of architecture, landscape architecture, art, planning and anthropology will tackle this once-controversial idea. The series spans the 2012-2013 academic year, with presentations by Dan Wood, Sheila O’Donnell and John Tuomey, Kevin Daly, Fuensanta Nieto and Enrique Sobejano, Tim Ingold and Julie Bargmann. Each of these speakers will discuss the ways in which the active processes of siting, locating, positioning and placing things and people in the world are conceived and embodied in their work.

Kevin Daly of Daly Genik Architects will speak as part of the "Placing" lecture series on Thursday, February 7, 2013. Kevin Daly is principal and co-founder of Daly Genik Architects, a practice with a focus on craft, construction systems and material research. Daly Genik Architects produces environmentally and socially responsive educational, residential and institutional projects ranging in scale from single-room artist work spaces to campus master planning.
