Bubble Problems: An Archeology of Infection and Environmental Control with Lydia Kallipoliti, Ph.D.
Lydia Kallipoliti, assistant professor, The Cooper Union, New York; principal ANAcycle thinktank, presents the lecture "Bubble Problems: An Archeology of Infection and Environmental Control" at 12:00 p.m. via Zoom as part of the Rice Architecture Spring 2021 Lecture Series.

With new protocols of decontamination becoming part of daily life, the pandemic has fundamentally transformed our correlation in space by instituting new contracts of entry and departure, comparative proximity, and sense of orientation. These contracts assemble new mappings relative to the constitution of micro-ecologies and the movement of bodies in space diffusing pathogens. In this talk, I will investigate architectures of containment, compulsive confinement, absurdity and hysteria in order to find new ways to fathom architectural legacies of interiorization, climatic control, and fear of infection.

Mar 24, 2021 12:00 PM in Central Time (US and Canada)
