Architecture: Modern, Today, Tomorrow:
John Lobell's Architecture: Modern, Today, Tomorrow Series
Artis—Naples Lifelong Learning
John Lobell, M. Arch., Professor at Pratt Institute
We are in a golden age of architecture, but where did today’s architecture come from and where is it going? In this series of three lectures, John Lobell shows us today’s spectacular buildings, discusses their origins and speculates about what the future holds for us. Each lecture includes beautiful images.
March 12: Modern
March 13: Today
March 14: Tomorrow
We cannot predict the future of architecture — we will have to wait for the architects of the future to bring it to us. But just as the pioneers of modern architecture used the glass, steel and concrete of the industrial age, so the architects of the future will use our new technologies, including composite plastics, robotic building, nanotechnology and even information technologies. Most dramatically, synthetic DNA may enable buildings to build themselves. Join us in speculating about what our emerging 21st century has yet in store for us. This lecture is part John Lobell's series, Architecture: Modern, Today, Tomorrow.
