Architecture Lecture | Clark Thenhaus: Darlings & Other Building Parts
In this presentation, architect Clark Thenhaus discusses his practice, Endemic Architecture, which seeks to create architecture that we call “almost familiar”; enrich experiences by eliciting curiosity and delight; celebrate local conditions while maintaining a commitment to the social and cultural dimensions of architecture; and maintain a commitment to expanding architecture’s received histories, theories, representations, voices, techniques, and stories.
