DAVID RUY LECTURE: TECHNIQUES OF ESTRANGEMENT

18 May 2015 19:00 pm - Städelschule Aula

SAC welcomes back David Ruy. Ruy is an architect, theorist, and director of Ruy Klein in New York City. Ruy Klein examines contemporary problems at the intersection of architecture, nature, and technology. Encompassing a wide array of experimentation, projects study the mutual imbrications of artificial and natural regimes that are shaping an ever more synthetic world. Widely published and exhibited, Ruy Klein has been the recipient of numerous awards recognising the firm as one of the leading experimental practices in architecture today. Ruy received his M.Arch. from Columbia University and his BA from St. John’s College with a concentration in philosophy and mathematics. He is currently an Associate Professor at the Graduate School of Architecture and Urban Design at Pratt Institute, New York.
