Jeffrey Kipnis, professor of architectural design and theory at the Knowlton School of Architecture at The Ohio State University, will lecture at the Syracuse University School of Architecture Wednesday, Oct. 4, at 4:30 p.m. in the main auditorium of the school’s home, The Warehouse, 350 W. Fayette St. The lecture, “Critical Discrimination,” is free and open to the public. For information on parking at The Warehouse, call 443-8238.
Kipnis’ writings on art and architecture have appeared in such publications as “Log,” “Hunch,” “Harvard Design Magazine,” “Quaderns,” “2G,” “El Croquis,” “Art Forum” and “Assemblage.” His books include “Chora L Works” (co-editor with Thomas Leeser, Monacelli, 1997), “Perfect Acts of Architecture” (co-author with Terence Riley and Sheri Geldin, Museum of Modern Art, 2002) and “Philip Johnson: The Glass House” (Pantheon, 1993).
As architecture/design curator for the Wexner Center for the Arts, he organized the design survey “Mood River” with co-curator Annetta Massie and “Suite Fantastique,” a compilation of four exhibitions: “Perfect Acts of Architecture,” “The Furniture of Scott Burton,” “The Predator — A Collaboration Between Greg Lynn and Fabian Marcaccio” and “Imaginary Forces — Motion Graphics.” His film, “A Constructive Madness,” produced in collaboration with Tom Ball and Brian Neff, looks at the architect’s work on the unbuilt but seminal Peter Lewis house project.
