Low-resolution Houses Symposium

08 November - 09 November
Organized by: Princeton University School of Architecture
Venue: Princeton University School of Architecture
Princeton University School of Architecture
Princeton, NJ

In conjunction with Princeton University School of Architecture’s 44 Low-resolution Houses exhibition, curated by Michael Meredith and designed by MOS, this multi-day international symposium expands the Low-resolutionlabel beyond the gallery. Considering houses through the double lens of technology and representation—a desirable design object, an image, a stage set, a thing, a product both in how it is made and culturally understood—the symposium addresses three themes: Low-Res Elements, Low-Res Tectonics, and Low-Res Organization.

As our closing event for the exhibition, the Low-resolution Houses symposium coincides with the School of Architecture’s Fall Semester theme of “Domestic” and will take place in Betts Auditorium on Thursday, November 8th at 6:00pm with a roundtable featuring Dean Mónica Ponce de León, Associate Professor Michael Meredith, and Professor Stan Allen. The symposium continues on Friday, November 9th from 10:00am to 5:00pm with selected exhibition participants including: Adamo-Faiden, Atelier Barda, Besler & Sons, Bureau Spectacular, Ensamble Studio, First Office, The LADG, MAIO, Outpost Office, Paul Preissner, T+E+A+M, and Hans Tursack.
