BLDGBLOG at the Orensanz Foundation (under low-light conditions)

This evening Geoff Manaugh of BLDGBLOG will present a few ideas best summed up in the title of the talk, “Designing the Post-Terrestrial.” As with other lectures I’ve seen by Geoff, it promises to be wide-ranging and entertaining.

A quick précis of the talk  in Geoff’s own words: “Expect everything from Native American mound builders to applied geosynthetics to the architecture of Vicente Guallart, by way of weather control during the Beijing Olympics, muon detectors in the rain forest, and Viking archaeology.”
Indeed! Space is scant, please RSVP at dcrit@sva.edu if you haven’t already.
