2023–2024 Public Programs, Spring Edition
MD Anderson Hall, Farish Gallery

Amale Andraos, Hon. FRAIC, cofounded WORKac in 2003 with Dan Wood. She is a principal of the firm as well as a professor and dean emerita at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation (GSAPP), where she recently served as an advisor on the university’s climate initiatives and for the newly launched climate school. Andraos is recognized as a thought leader, contributing widely to the field through her lectures and writings. Her publications include The Arab City: Architecture and Representation, a critical engagement of contemporary architecture and urbanism in the Middle East.

Andraos will present her practice’s recent work in a lecture entitled “Buildings for People and Plants.” Her lecture will focus on a series of projects that reexamine architecture’s capacities to actively reshape social and environmental concerns, building on WORKac’s focus on public projects across contexts and its innovative approaches to preservation, sustainable systems, and a greater integration of architecture and landscape at the scale of buildings.

This program is made possible through the generous support of the Betty R. and George F. Pierce Jr., FAIA, Fund; the William B. Coleman Jr. Colloquium Fund for Architecture; and the Wm. W. Caudill Lecture Series Fund.
