Frank Barkow, Founder and Partner, Barkow Leibinger, Berlin-New York, presents the lecture “Toolbox” on Monday, February 24, at 6:00 p.m. in Farish Gallery at Anderson Hall, as part of the Rice Architecture Spring 2020 Lecture Series.

Barkow is an educator, researcher, and practicing architect educated at Montana State University and the Harvard Graduate School of Design. He is a design and construction leader in the practice and heads up the research group. His pragmatic approach embraces design in a discursive way, which allows the firm’s work to respond to advancing knowledge and technology. 







Since 2016, he is a professor at the Princeton University School of Architecture and has recently taught for the Harvard GSD. Further teaching posts include, among others, the Architectural Association in London and Cornell University. The Spring 2020 Lecture Series is made possible through the generous support of the Betty R. and George F. Pierce Jr., FAIA, Fund.
