Dallas Architecture Forum presents Mohsen Mostafavi :: March 22, 2012

The Dallas Architecture Forum is pleased to announce that Dean of the Harvard Graduate School of Design, Mohsen Mostafavi will speak for the Rose Family Lecture on Thursday, March 22, 2012 at 7 p.m. at Magnolia Theatre, 3699 McKinney Ave. in Uptown Dallas.

Dean Mostafavi will address the Forum on the important topic of “Ecological Urbanism”. While climate change, sustainable architecture, and green technologies have become increasingly topical, a coherent understanding of the sustainability of the city is much less developed. An ecological approach is urgently needed as an imaginative and practical method for addressing existing as well as new cities. Ecological urbanism considers the city with multiple instruments and with an interdisciplinary worldview that is fluid in scale and focus. Design provides the synthetic key to connect ecology with an urbanism that is not in contradiction with its environment.

Tickets are $20 per lecture for general admission and $5 for students (with ID). Tickets can be purchased at the door before the lecture. Dallas Architecture Forum members receive free admission to all regular Forum lectures as a benefit of membership, and AIA members can earn one hour of CE credit for each lecture. For more information, visit www.dallasarchitectureforum.org, email director@dallasarchitectureforum.org or call 214-764-2406.
