Moving a composite Architecture-Lecture in Environmental Design
Greg Lynn, architect and professor at UCLA and Yale is the founder of the studio Greg Lynn FORM, a firm that defines the cutting edge of design in a variety of fields. Time magazine named him one of the 100 most innovative people in the world for the 21st century, and Forbes named him one of the ten most influential living architects. In 2008, he won the Golden Lion at the Venice Biennale of Architecture. His Korean Presbyterian Church of New York was officially listed by the New York City Landmarks Commission as one of the 30 most important buildings built in the city in the last 30 years. The buildings, projects, publications, teachings and writings associated with his office have been influential in the acceptance and use of advanced materials and technologies for design and fabrication. Lynn is a studio professor at UCLA’s School of Architecture and Urban Design where he is currently spearheading the development of an experimental research robotics lab. Since the turn of the century he has been the Davenport Visiting Professor at Yale. Lynn’s lecture has been approved for one CES credit from the American Institute of Architects and is open to the public without charge.
