2021 Hearst Lecture Series - Ricardo de Ostos

Ricardo de Ostos ‘Creatures’, Friday, January 15, 1 pm PST.

Join us via Zoom with ID 898 6529 2992.

What can Satan, Magical Realism and Science Fiction teach us about how to deal with the current environmental crisis? On a journey through cultural habits, sacred rivers, and invisible worlds the lecture will discuss environment in architecture as CREATURES.

Ricardo de Ostos creates speculative fictions that envision architectural projects in shifting environmental and cultural contexts. He lives and works in London and at both the Architectural Association, and The Bartlett School of Architecture. He is the co-director of NaJa & deOstos Studio and co-author of “The Hanging Cemetery of Baghdad” (Springer Wien/New York, 2006), “Ambiguous Spaces” (Princeton Press, 2007) and “Scavengers and Other Creatures in Promised Lands” (2017, AA).
