Ulrika Karlsson - Interiors after Images
In this lecture, Ulrika Karlsson will address her specific interest in architectural representations and their translations, where the representation of the architectural object sometimes coincides with the object itself. The coincidence of the object and its representation sometimes leads to the conflation of material and information. Karlsson pursues this interest through projects in her architectural practice as well as research.
Ulrika Karlsson is an architect and founding member of the architectural design and research collaboratives Brrum and servo stockholm. She is professor of architecture at KTH School of Architecture, Stockholm, where she previously served as the Director of the Architecture programme. Karlsson has been a professor at the University of Arts, Craft and Design, Stockholm, and taught at Bartlett, London, and UCLA, Los Angeles. She received her master degree in architecture from Columbia University and landscape architecture degree from the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences.
Karlsson has received several prestigious research grants, including from the Swedish Research Council and the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts. Her projects and written work has been widely published - including in Arq, Perspecta, Via, Arkitektur and AD. Her work has been exhibited at the Venice Architecture Biennale, the Centre Pompidou, ArkDes, SFMoMA, and the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum. Servo’s work is part of the permanent collections of SFMoMA and the FRAC Centre.
