LECTURE: DAVID BENJAMIN + SOO-IN YANG: LIFE NOW

April 23, 2008 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Wednesday, April 23, 7:00 - 8:30 pm
Location: 112 Wurster Hall, UC Berkeley

Benjamin and Yang discuss their project, The Living City, a full-scale prototype building skin designed to breathe in response to air quality. One of the first architecture prototypes to link local responses in a building to a distributed network of sensors throughout the city, it confronts the air as the most public and politicized of spaces in the city – shared by all but invisible, often divisible, and intensely debated and controlled.

This lecture is part of the UC Berkeley Architecture Spring 2008 lecture series.
