ARCH Lecture: Peggy Deamer
Wed Mar 14, 2018 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Please join us for a talk with Peggy Deamer, Professor of Architecture at Yale University. This talk will focus on the positive implications of understanding the nature of architectural work as WORK. In order to be empowered as a designer, employee, and firm owner, it is important socially, economically, and personally to understand the nature of that work. PEGGY DEAMER received a B.Arch. from The Cooper Union and a Ph.D. from Princeton University. She is a principal in the firm of Deamer Architects. Articles written by her have been published in Assemblage, Log, Perspecta, Harvard Design Review among other publications. She is the editor of Architecture and Capitalism: 1845 to the Present and The Architect as Worker: Immaterial Labor, the Creative Class, and the Politics of Design. She is co-editor of Building in the Future: Recasting Architectural Labor and BIM in Academia. She is the founding member of The Architecture Lobby, a group advocating for the value of architectural design and labor. Her current research explores the relationship between subjectivity, design, and labor in the current economy. This lecture is presented by Room One Thousand, and it is part of the Spring 2018 Architecture Lecture Series. This event is open to the public! The lecture will be followed by a reception in the 2nd floor lobby of Wurster Hall.
