Spring 2022 Public Lecture Series
2022-01-26 • Liam Otten
Can contemporary urban housing coexist with sustainable landscapes?
Celebrated architect Tatiana Bilbao, in her masterplan for On Olive, the 3.5-acre residential development in midtown St. Louis, answers that question by combining lush gardens and wandering footpaths with dramatic designs, rooted in local history, by a series of internationally recognized collaborators.
On February 22, Bilbao—founder of the acclaimed Mexico City-based firm Tatiana Bilbao ESTUDIO—will discuss her architectural practice for the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis.
Presented as part of the Sam Fox School’s spring Public Lecture Series, the talk is among 19 events featuring nationally and internationally renowned artists, architects, designers, and scholars.
The series will begin February 3 with a lecture by H ARQUITECTES, the collaborative studio based in Sabadell, Barcelona, followed by architect Yasmin Vobis (February 4). Next up will be artists Lisa Lapinski (February 9) and Brian Richter (February 17).
The Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum will co-sponsor talks by artists Chitra Ganesh (March 7) and Nicole Miller (March 26), as well as by scholar Anne Anlin Cheng (March 31). Ganesh and Miller are both featured in exhibitions at the museum this spring. For more information, including visitor protocols, visit kemperartmuseum.wustl.edu.
Meanwhile, architects Dwayne Oyler & Jenny Wu, founders of the Oyler Wu Collaborative, will speak February 25, followed by Oliver Schulze, founding partner of Copenhagen-based Schulze+Grassov, who will launch The Lively City Workshop March 2. Artist Dario Robleto, whose work is featured this spring at St. Louis’ Laumeier Sculpture Park, will screen and discuss his recently completed first film March 4.
Other highlights will include talks by children’s book author and illustrator Brian Floca (March 11), artists Maya Muchawsky Parnas (March 23) and Hope Ginsburg (April 1), and architects Ramon Bosch and Bet Capdeferro (March 21), Wiel Arets (March 28), Fuensanta Nieto (April 7), Marina Tabassum (April 11), and Thomas Phifer (April 18).
