(IN)scribe Drawing - Com(POSE) Space

ENG 406 Auditorium, Byblos campus

The Department of Architecture and Interior Design is hosting a lecture titled: “(IN)scribe Drawing - Com(POSE) Space” by Ian F. Taberner AIA. The lecture offers how geometry, with its marks, etchings, and impressions on a surface may inform our understanding of space. Geometry, as a means of registering what we have discovered, reveals and provides us with instructions - with information, direction, and a promise for built form.

Ian Frederick Taberner AIA is a practicing architect and a professor of Architecture at the Boston Architectural College. He studied at Ryerson Polytechnical Institute and holds a Master’s degree from the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University. Ian was the 1985 William E. Muschenheim Fellow at the University of Michigan and was awarded a Fellowship for Architecture and Environmental Structures from the New York Foundation for the Arts. In 1998, he was awarded the AIAS President’s Award for a pro-bono project with his students, and in 2003, he received the Design for Excellence Award from the American Institute of Architects for the Greater Rochester 9-11 Memorial. The design of memorials is central to his work and teaching and a forum for exploration between ideas concerning architecture, interior design, and landscape, and how we may be able to diminish the differences between these three professional disciplines.
