MAPP Lecture | Daniel Solomon, FAIA: Attack of the Slab Monsters | Wednesday, Feb. 29, 6:15pm

Description:
Please join us on WEDNESDAY, February 29, 2012 at 6:16pm for the Kea Distinguished Professor Lecture by Daniel Solomon, FAIA, as he discusses the Attack of the Slab Monsters. The lecture will trace how a single, seductive architectural idea, applied to new housing in many parts of the world, caused incalculable damage. The architect, urban designer and professor emeritus will ask the question, Why was it a bad idea to shrink-wrap our souls into a city of diagrams? and will further discuss the nature of slab monster damage, aspects of city building that simplistic thinking ignores, and show works that attempt to redress these problems. Daniel Solomon is Professor Emeritus of Architecture and Urban Design at University of California Berkeley and principal architect at Daniel Solomon Design Partners Inc. His 42-year career combines achievements in professional practice with academic pursuits of teaching and writing. {Will appear in FYI on Feb 28, 2012
