    Architecture & Beauty Symposium @ SCI-Arc
    Architecture & Beauty: A Troubled Relationship:
    with Yael Reisner, Sir Peter Cook, Hernan Diaz Alonso, Frank Gehry, Greg Lynn, Thom Mayne and Eric Owen Moss

    Wednesday, Sept 15, 7:30pm
    SCI-Arc Graduation Pavilion
    Alumni and Friends Reception follows

    Architecture and beauty provide the dynamic catalyst for a symposium moderated by Yael Reisner with architects Sir Peter Cook, Hernan Diaz-Alonso, Frank Gehry, Greg Lynn, Thom Mayne and Eric Owen Moss, who are among today's most progressive and high-profile architects featured in her book written with Fleur Watson, Architecture and Beauty: Conversations with Architects about a Troubled Relationship (published by John Wiley & Sons, 2010). The symposium will offer a rare insight to these creative minds, as they share their positions, opinions and points of view on whether they think beauty is integral or non-essential to architecture.

    Stirring further the contemporary architectural issues that stem from the troubled relationship between architecture and beauty, the symposium will highlight architects' complexity with the visual culture, self-expression and its reflection on subjectivity and objectivity; the 'I' vs. the 'eye' ; all and more in discussion with the distinguished panelists of L.A. based architects - 5 out of the 16 featured architects in the book.

    Immediately following the symposium, please join friends and colleagues for a SCI-Arc alumni reception with Cook, Diaz-Alonso, Gehry, Lynn, Mayne, Moss and Reisner. The book will be available for purchase at the event.
