Ron Rael: Unnatural Architecture
While mud, mold, straw, salt, sawdust, sand, garbage, overgrowth and paper may seem like materials outside of the realm of architecture, when these materials are organized in particular ways or contexts, they can reveal issues related to poverty, politics, technology and the relationships between people and the environment. Ron Rael will discuss how material provenance in his and his students' work can have meaningful implications in the production of architecture. Rael is an assistant professor at Berkeley and an architect at the Oakland-based studio Rael San Fratello.
