Placing: Portland State University Department of Architecture’s 2012-2013 Lecture Series

“Architects create places, not spaces.” Once challenging, this assertion has become commonplace for architecture practitioners, students and teachers. In Portland State University Department of Architecture’s 2012-2013 lecture series, titled “Placing,” six internationally renowned presenters from the fields of architecture, landscape architecture, art, anthropology and planning will discuss the ways in which the active processes of siting, locating, positioning and placing things and people in the world are conceived and embodied in their work.
