Albert Pope Faculty Talk: "A Promethean Increment"
February 22, 2021
Albert Pope, Gus Sessions Wortham Professor, Rice Architecture, presented the Faculty Talk "A Promethean Increment" on February 22, 2021, as part of the Rice Architecture Spring 2021 Lecture Series.
"A Promethean Increment" describes recent research on design methodologies that bridge the gap between the smaller scale of architectural solutions and the larger scale at which our most pressing environmental and urban problems exist. Revisiting the indispensable role of typology, these methodologies attempt to describe an aggregate design process as an alternative to the preemptive logic of masterplanning.
