In Conversation: Practice, Process, and Projects with Walter Hood

Thursday, March 8 from 7-9 PM

The UAM and the CSULB Department of Design have partnered to present a talk by Walter Hood as part of the Duncan Anderson Design Lecture Series in association with Robert Irwin: Site Determined

Walter Hood is the award-winning Creative Director and Founder of Hood Design Studio in Oakland, CA and a professor at the University of California, Berkeley who lectures internationally.  Hood Design Studio is tripartite practice, working across art + fabrication, design + landscape, and research + urbanism.  The resulting urban spaces and their objects act as public sculpture, creating new apertures through which to see the surrounding emergent beauty, strangeness, and idiosyncrasies.  The Studio’s award winning work has been featured in publications including Dwell, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Fast Company, Architectural Digest, Places Journal, and Landscape Architecture Magazine. Walter Hood is also a recipient of the 2017 Academy of Arts and Letters Architecture Award.
