Urban Art and the Building: Urban Objects
The Objects Symposium, part of the 2017-2018 Sawyer Seminar on Urban Art and Urban Form, focuses on all that “stuff” in urban space that’s neither building nor infrastructure—benches, streetlights, bus shelters, sculptures, performance works, and small-scale projects. Less an intervention as they are a kind of tactical insertion into everyday space, urban objects—whether mobile or static, animate or inanimate—re-activate public space in various ways. We will consider how these objects elicit a moment of pause for reflection and incisively draw our attention to urban space, processes, and issues. Speakers include Ogrydziak Prillinger Architects, Dana Cuff, Pope.L., and Dan Peterman.
