    Geoff Manaugh lectures @ SCI-Arc
    Geoff Manaugh: Quadraturin and Other Architectural Expansionary Tales

    Wednesday, October 13, 7pm
    W.M. Keck Lecture Hall

    Geoff Manaugh is the author of BLDGBLOG and The BLDGBLOG Book, former senior editor of Dwell magazine, and a contributing editor at Wired UK. Along with Nicola Twilley, he organized and co-curated the "Landscapes of Quarantine" design studio and exhibition at New York's Storefront for Art and Architecture in 2009/2010, and he is currently curating a 2011 exhibition for the Nevada Museum of Art called "Landscape Futures."

    From 'trap streets' in London and the fiction of China MiƩville to the folklore of The First Fossil Hunters and myths of Alexander's Gates to, of course, Quadraturin by way of Franz Kafka, Mike Mignola, Rupert Thomson, 3D-printing bees, haunted skyscrapers, neutrino storms, the Cyclonopedia, and much more, the talk will be a quick rundown of both the narrative implications of architecture and the architectural implications of specific storylines.

    In addition to lecturing on a broad range of architectural topics at schools and museums around the world, Manaugh has taught design studios at Columbia University, the Pratt Institute, the University of Technology, Sydney, and USC. He lives in Los Angeles.
