I’m excited to announce that I’ll be lecturing at the Rice University School of Architecture in Houston, Texas, in only two days’ time, kicking off their Spring 2009 lecture series.

I’ve clearly got some very large shoes to fill with this series, however, as I’ve been lined up with everyone from Beatriz Colomina to Cynthia Davidson. Stan Allen, Juan Herreros, Richard Ingersoll, Pier Vittorio Aureli, Michael Weinstock, Peter Trummer – it looks like a fantastic series.
For my own part, I think I’ve got a great talk planned – called “Cities Gone Wild” – expanding from the lecture I gave back in November, sponsored by the Complex Terrain Laboratory, at University College, London.
This talk begins at 5pm on Wednesday, January 7; it’s free and open to the public; and it will take place in Anderson Hall.
I don’t know how many readers BLDGBLOG has in Houston – or, for that matter, at Rice – but I’d love to see some of you there. And please introduce yourselves, too, as I love meeting new people.
Also, at the end of my talk I hope to address the more general subject of blogging, if for no other reason than I can guarantee that there are students enrolled at Rice right now – and people living in Houston – who have something interesting to say and simply need a new platform from which to say it. I’d be happy to talk about establishing a blog and so on, as that’s not a topic I’ve much addressed throughout all of these talks.
Finally, I’ll be doing thesis reviews at the architecture department all day on Thursday and Friday, so if you happen to be enrolled in the courses I’ll be visiting, then cool. I look forward to meeting you!
And come out to the talk – it should be fun.
