Event description

A lecture by Georgina Huljich, Associate Professor in the Department of Architecture and Urban Design at UCLA and Co-Director of P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S Studio, the work of which is featured in Mute Icons: and Other Dichotomies in the Real in Architecture.

"Interrogating historical, contemporary, and — more importantly— speculative images, Mute Icons aims to construct a viable alternative to the icon’s cliché and exhausted form of communication, positing one that is decidedly introverted and withdrawn. Developing a language and a sensibility for discovering simultaneous, contradictory, and even unexpected readings of architectural form, PATTERNS’s new book Mute Icons, aims to carve out a niche in contemporary culture and history by suggesting that far from being a crowd-pleaser, architecture can persist within society as a constructive cultural and social irritant. 

Part history, part theory, and part monographic atlas, the book includes contributions by Georgina Huljich, Guillermo Martinez, Ciro Najle, Marcelo Spina, Brett Steele, and Constance Vale."
