Join us on February 24, 2020 with Assistant Professor Kris Palagi of Louisana State University.
This lecture examines the development of a critical design approach, the Seeding Sequence, as a studio pedagogy and its impact on design-build research into concrete construction. Drawing from a Systems Thinking approach to constructing complex relationships, this process trades the designer’s fixation of the architectural object for one of Adaptive Assemblies. Matured through professional practice, this design process has earned national recognition for its implementation in an Integrated Design studio while the design-build research has been selected for an upcoming article in Technology | Architecture + Design (TAD).
Kris Palagi is an assistant professor at the School of Architecture at Louisiana State University and holds an NCARB certification with professional architectural licenses in the state of Hawaii and Louisiana. Following a decade of private practice and six years of teaching at the University of Hawaii Manoa School of Architecture, Kris built upon his Master of Architecture from Montana State University, 2000, with a post-professional M.Arch from Cornell University in 2015. Now in Louisiana, assistant professor Palagi’s pedagogical approach and design research have earned National recognition with students winning the ACSA2019 Built2Last and the 2018 Designing Healthy Places Design Competitions. In addition, the parallel design research into fabric-lined tensile formwork will be published in the upcoming TRANSLATION issue of Technology | Architecture + Design (TAD).
