Lecture: The Archaeology of Tomorrow: Architecture and the Spirit of Place
Monday, February 5, 6:30 – 8:00pm
In his three decades as an architect, author, educator, and philosopher, Travis Price, AIA, has developed an architecture informed by ecology and mythology that restores spirit of place to modern design. His projects worldwide — including the world’s largest solar-powered building (the Tennessee Valley Authority’s one-million-square-foot complex) — and his design/build expeditions that include a floating house on the Amazon and a star-gazing temple at Machu Picchu, suggest alternatives to homogenization in the American landscape and around the globe. After the lecture, he will sign copies of his book The Archaeology of Tomorrow: Architecture and the Spirit of Place).
This lecture is held in conjunction with The Green House, which will be open for viewing. $12 Members and students; $20 nonmembers; pre-paid registration required; walk-in registration based on availability
