Iñaki Ábalos – Fall Lecture Series 2015
Tonight our guest lecturer Iñaki Ábalos, invited as part of the Fall Lecture Series 2015, inspired the audience with his lecture: Engine, Monsters, Books and Seven Works.
Iñaki Ábalos is founder and director of Abalos+Sentkiewicz arquitectos. He currently is Professor in Residence and Chair of the Department of Architecture at the Graduate School of Design, Harvard University, and Chaired Professor at ETSAM, UPM. He previously was Founder and Director of Abalos & Herreros (1984-2006) and has taught in other prestigious university centers such as the Architectural Association, EPFL and Columbia, Cornell and Princeton Universities, combining academic, professional, and research activity. The developed work stands out for proposing an original synthesis of technical rigor, formal imagination and discipline integration between architecture, environment and landscape.
