Places Co-Presents Fall Lecture Series at Fay Jones School

Fall 2022 Lectures at Fay Jones School

We are pleased to continue our collaboration with the Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design at University of Arkansas and co-present the school’s Fall 2022 Lecture Series.

The new series, coordinated by Assistant Professor of Architecture Brian Holland, will feature a series of in-person talks by leading designers, artists, and scholars. Lectures are free and open to the public, and will take place on the Fayetteville campus, at Vol Walker Hall.

The series kicked off with a lecture by Yolande Daniels, cofounder of studioSUMO, on September 12. Upcoming speakers include Phillip G. Bernstein, associate dean at Yale School of Architecture, on September 26; Paola Aguirre and Dennis Milam, founders of Borderless Studio, on October 3; Chris Cornelius, chair of architecture at University of New Mexico and founder of Studio:Indigenous, on October 10; Germane Barnes, assistant professor at University of Miami, on October 24; David Leven and Stella Betts, partners of LEVENBETTS, on October 31; Julia Gamolina, founder of Madame Architect and associate principal at Ennead Architects, on November 7; and Toshiko Mori, professor of practice at Harvard Graduate School of Design, on November 14.

“As our public lecture series returns fully to in-person programming, the Fay Jones School is thrilled to be able to continue our partnership with Places Journal,” says Brian Holland. “This collaboration — for us, one of the bright spots of the pandemic era — creates a platform for diverse and distinguished voices in design and architecture to share their work with a broader audience, and to continue asking big questions about the agency of design practice and scholarship in a time of social, environmental, and technological change.”

Following each lecture, Places will share links to the lectures via Twitter and Instagram so all those interested can view at their convenience, and all lectures will be accessible at this playlist, which will accumulate as the series proceeds.
