Weiss/Manfredi deliver Abend Family Visiting Critic Endowed Lecture at Washington University in St. Louis

Part of a Public Lecture Series, Marion Weiss and Michael Manfredi held the Abend Family Visiting Critic Endowed Lecture at WUSTL’s Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts.

Each semester, the Sam Fox School brings nationally and internationally recognized architects, artists, designers, landscape architects, urban designers, historians, and critics to campus, promoting new ideas in practice, theory, and technology. Invited speakers often interact with students during workshops and informal gatherings, in addition to participating in studio visits, where they conduct one-on-one reviews of work.

Marion Weiss and Michael Manfredi’s lecture, titled “Drifting Symmetries,” focused on the liminal boundaries between architecture, landscape, and urban infrastructure.
