Gerard Reinmuth will give his inaugural lecture as Professor of Practice at UTS, Sydney, on March 9.
TERROIR have always practiced architecture as a broad intellectual and cultural activity, whereby the knowledge built up on a range of activities, exhibitions, lectures, writings and other forms of engagement with the discipline has been deployed in a suite of buildings. This has resulted in a suite of buildings nearly all of which have been published in Australia and internationally.
The lecture - titled Practice Transformations - will trace the evolution of TERROIR from a traditionally organised architectural practice to a collective endeavour which spans building, practice, education, advocacy and critique.
This new role at UTS will see the deployment of Gerard’s focus in the potential of architectural practice in an academic environment, providing the opportunity to work through important questions faced by the profession in the complex globalised environment in which we now operate. This lecture will provide an overview of how Gerard’s work over the past decade will inform this new role.
Wednesday, 9th March 2011. Location to be confirmed.
