Eric Höweler Lecture
Means + Methods
Means and Methods is the construction industry term for the way something is built or fabricated. It is also designates a territory outside the realm of architecture. It is explicitly extra-architectural, a kind of forbidden territory. Much of design relies on understanding how things come together, tolerances, properties, where materials come from, where the materials may end up in the future. These broadened understandings of architecture are not just important to the design process, they are essential in creating a more expansive definition of what it is that architects do. The lecture will present a number of extra-territorial projects by Höweler + Yoon Architecture and the processes and products of their expanded practice.
