Lars Lerup joins Rice Architecture for a farewell lecture and reception at 5:30 p.m. in Farish Gallery. Lerup is a design, writer, and Professor of Architecture at Rice University. He was Dean at Rice Architecture and William Ward Watkin Professor from 1993 to 2009. Previously, he taught for many years at the University of California at Berkeley. His work focuses on the intersection of nature and culture in the contemporary American metropolis, and on Houston in particular. He is currently finishing up work on a new book, entitled Toxic Ecology: At the Limit of the Entrepreneurial City, which examines the consequences the city's relentless growth and expansion has had on various natural systems, and further, how those consequences will effect the future of the city. Lerup was named the Swedish-American Citizen of the Year in 2004 for his lifelong contributions to architectural education and practice. The lecture is free and open to the public. [Organizer's description]
