CAAD Lectures : Crafted Practice
You are cordially invited to attend a lecture on "Crafted Practice" by Elizabeth Whittaker.
Elizabeth Whittaker is an Assistant Professor in Practice of Architecture and has been teaching Core Studios since 2009. She is founder and principal of MERGE architects, based in Boston since 2003. Their work addresses multiple scales including commercial, institutional, retail, private residential, multi-family housing, as well as graphic and furni¬ture design. The office works side-by-side with the client and teams of fabricators, art¬ists, craftsmen and engineers to produce an architecture that embraces the art of mak¬ing within a larger agenda: to re-define the urban and social boundaries in and around the city. The work combines both digital fabrication and the hand made by working through a cross-disciplinary as well a cross-production process. The work of MERGE ar¬chitects has been widely published both nationally and internationally and has received multiple awards including eight AIA/BSA awards, a citation for the international Harbor Park Pavilion Competition, and second place for the new AIA/BSA Headquarters in Bos¬ton. Elizabeth has lectured extensively within the US and abroad and was just recently nominated for the National American Institute of Architects, Young Architect's Award.
