A Lecture by Nader Tehrani, Founding Principal of NADAAA, Dean of Cooper Union School of Architecture, New York
This lecture speaks to the longue durée of architecture, and how we might become relevant to an age beyond that in which we live. In part, this is a commitment to a future that outlasts the problems we seek to solve today, but also it seeks to speak to discourses that precede us and produce conversations across history. In this capacity, we may even realize that what we do today may seem out of synch with our times, but temporally in focus with a larger discursive ambition.
