UT Exhibit Describes Urban Analysis and Design Intervention

infra eco logi urbanism exhibitBeginning Monday, October 5, the UT College of Architecture and Design will host an exhibition in the Ewing Gallery that describes a methodology for urban analysis and design intervention. The exhibition will run through October 31.

The exhibition, titled infra eco logi urbanism, suggests a strategy for architecture at the urban scale. This work positions a methodology for urban analysis and design intervention that aims to address boundaries, governance, politics, and public architecture.

The exhibition depicts a method that operates across scales—from the regional to the specific—and an event around which to debate regional systems and the role of design in figuring their futures.

The public is invited to join designers Geoffrey Thun and Kathy Velikov at an opening reception, 5:30-7:00 p.m. October 5, in the Art and Architecture Building, 1715 Volunteer Boulevard.

The exhibit has been shown at the University of Quebec at Montreal, Ryerson University in Toronto, Yale University and the University of Michigan. Thun and Velikov are faculty members at the University of Michigan College of Architecture and Urban Planning.
