In conjunction with Princeton University School of Architecture’s 44 Low-resolution Houses exhibition, curated by Michael Meredith and designed by MOS, this multi-day international symposium expands the “Low-resolution” label beyond the gallery. Considering houses through the double lens of technology and representation—a desirable design object, an image, a stage set, a thing, a product both in how it is made and culturally understood—the symposium addresses three themes: Low-res Elements, Low-res Construction, and Low-res Organization.

As our closing event for the exhibition, the Low-resolution Houses symposium coincides with the School of Architecture’s fall semester theme of “Domestic” and will take place in Betts Auditorium on Thursday, November 8 at 6pm with a roundtable featuring Dean Mónica Ponce de León, Associate Professor Michael Meredith, and Professor Stan Allen. The symposium continues on Friday, November 9 from 10am to 5pm with selected exhibition participants including: Adamo-Faiden, Atelier Barda, Besler & Sons, Bureau Spectacular, Ensamble Studio, First Office, The LADG, MAIO, Outpost Office, Paul Preissner, T+E+A+M, and Hans Tursack.
