Architecture lecture | Heterogeneous Constructions
Please join us for the first in the Heterogeneous Constructions lecture series. This event will feature a conversation between artist Marlon de Azambuja and architect and historian Jesús Vassallo, moderated by RISD Architecture faculty Aaron Forrest and Brett Schneider and Harvard GSD faculty Yasmin Vobis. The Heterogeneous Constructions series explores ideas and practices that challenge contemporary conventions around architectural materials, bringing together leading thinkers and makers from a range of disciplines. The series is funded by the RISD Architecture Design Research Seed Fund.

Jesús Vassallo is a Spanish architect and writer, and currently an associate professor at Rice University. His work focuses on the problem of realism in architecture through the production of design and scholarship. He is the author of Seamless: Digital Collage and Dirty Realism in Contemporary Architecture (Park Books, 2016), and Epics in the Everyday: Photography, Architecture and the Problem of Realism (Park Books, 2019). His articles have been published internationally in magazines such as El Croquis, AA Files, 2G, Log, Harvard Design Magazine, Domus, or Arquitectura Viva.
