Is Some Architecture Too Horrible to Build?

New, 1 comment

Imagine you were an architect and you were asked to design an execution chamber. Would you do it? Tomorrow at the Center for Architecture (1218 Arch Street), Alternatives to Incarceration's Raphael Sperry, a 2012 Soros Justice Fellow, will give a lunchtime talk about a proposed amendment to the AIA code of conduct that would prohibit architects from doing just that. Then at 6pm, Sperry will give a talk at Temple's architecture building (2001 N. 13th St., gallery 104) called "Bad Buildings—When Architecture Crosses the Line." We predict verbal fisticuffs.
