e-flux Architecture is proud to announce the spring 2024 season of e-flux Architecture Lectures, a monthly event series to discuss timely issues in contemporary architecture, theory, culture, and technology. e-flux Architecture Lectures aims to bring together both leading architectural historians and theorists as well as emerging researchers and practitioners to test out and experiment with new or ongoing research. Unthemed, the series simultaneously strives to generate new scholarship while surveying the cutting edge of architectural discourse. Our spring 2024 program includes lectures by Paulo Tavares, Alla Vronskaya, Samia Henni, Anthony Acciavatti, Meredith TenHoor, and Mabel O. Wilson.

Paulo Tavares, “Earth Works (Toward a Reparation Architecture)”

Alla Vronskaya is the Professor of the History and Theory of Architecture at Kassel University.

Meredith TenHoor, “On Residues and Repair”
May 9, 2024, 7pm

Meredith TenHoor is an architectural and urban historian, and the coordinator of undergraduate architectural history and theory at Pratt.

Wilson is an architectural designer and cultural historian. At Columbia University she is a Professor of Architecture, a co-director of Global Africa Lab, and the Associate Director at the Institute for Research in African American Studies. Her research investigates space, politics and cultural memory in black America; race and modern architecture; new technologies and the social production of space; and visual culture in contemporary art, media and film.
