The Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc) is pleased to announce the fall 2007 Lecture Series featuring world-renowned architects focusing on architectural innovation. Beginning September 26 at 7pm and continuing on Wednesday nights through November 28, the SCI-Arc Lecture Series presents nine relevant lectures focusing on innovative practices in architecture and architectural theory
Founded in 1999 in Tokyo by architects Tapio Snellman and Christian Grou, Neutral was born out of a fascination with an obsessive interest in urbanity and cities, spatial interaction, and visual communication. Based in London, the practice has attracted clients such as Toyota, Citroen, KONE, and Lufthansa German Airlines who have commissioned video-animations, interface design, and animated graphics. They have collaborated with architects such as Herzog & de Meuron, Zaha Hadid, and David Adjaye in the field of moving images have established Neutral's position within a wider architectural/ urban discourse. Neutral’s experimental approach to creating spaces is included in the current exhibition, Global Cities, on view at the Tate Modern, London through August 2007.
SCI-Arc Lectures begin at 7pm in the W. M. Keck Lecture Hall (Main Space) at SCI-Arc, 960 East 3rd Street, Los Angeles, CA 90013. Lectures are free and no reservations are required. Lectures can also be streamed live on SCI-Arc’s website at www.sciarc.edu/live.
