Lecture by Ersela Kripa & Stephen Mueller: AGENCY
Tuesday, April 4, 2017 at 6:30pm
7500 N Glenoaks Blvd, Burbank, CA 91504
AGENCY is a collaborative interdisciplinary practice engaging contemporary culture through architecture, urbanism, and advocacy. Partners Ersela Kripa and Stephen Mueller are thought leaders in a social practice developing award-winning architectural projects and urban strategies at a variety of scales.
Seeking productive anomalies in the overlooked, the under-represented, and the everyday, the practice identifies, synthesizes, and transforms emerging urban paradigms. The practice draws on the partners’ extensive experience in architectural construction, fabrication, education, and independently directed research. The unprecedented challenges of rapid urbanization, ecological instability, and widespread resource depletion are matched only by an exponentially increasing capacity for innovation in architectural thought and production. Emerging technologies, communications, and models of practice offer a new generation the ability to identify and transform the most pressing urban and ecological issues through design. AGENCY positions architectural design as a systemic instrumentation of material ecologies, social constituencies, political policies, and ethical thought, embracing a transformative role, and enabling new paradigms of cultural production.
Be sure to also join us for the opening of BREACH, an exhibition curated by Ersela Kripa and Stephen Mueller at the WUHO Gallery in Hollywood.
