Join us Wednesday, November 16th at the KCDC for a lecture by Martin Felsen of UrbanLab. A social hour will be held starting at 5:30pm, with the lecture following at 6pm; admittance is free and street parking is available. 

About the Lecture:

Martin will present UrbanLab's new book titled "Bowling," which explores relationships between architecture and infrastructure. Bowling is a design approach that makes physical "bowls" in the urban landscape to align shared resources with city life. Some bowls are made from scratch, while others are assembled from repurposed geological formations and urban infrastructures. UrbanLab's bowls span scales, from small buildings and spaces, to industrial districts and wide-ranging regions.  

About Martin Felsen: 

Plying the boundaries between practice and education, Martin Felsen blends design and data to produce uniquely progressive, site-specific built works and research, resulting in a new aesthetic for environmentally resilient architecture, landscapes, and public space. Martin founded UrbanLab as an alternative practice aiming to synthesize diverse methodologies, technical innovation, and hybrid vocabularies drawn equally from architecture and its complex urban and natural contexts.
