James Carpenter AGC Glass-College of Architecture and Design Lecture

The College of Architecture and Design's 2020-2021 Lecture Series continues with a lecture by James Carpenter on March 29, 2021, 6:30 p.m. ET. The lecture is sponsored by AGC Glass and is free and open to the public.

Carpenter will lecture on “Light in the Public Realm.” This lecture will focus upon a 40-year trajectory of work that brings agency to the presence of light, allowing it to reveal the properties and presence of nature within our built environment.

James Carpenter has worked at the intersection of art, engineering and the built environment for 50 years, advancing a distinctive vision based on the use of natural light and glass as the foundational elements of the built environment. Carpenter founded the cross-disciplinary design firm James Carpenter Design Associates in 1979 to support the application of these aesthetic principles to large-scale building projects.

Carpenter has been recognized with numerous national and international awards, including an Academy Award in Architecture from the American Academy of Arts and Letters and a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship. He holds a degree from the Rhode Island School of Design and was a Loeb Fellow of Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design.
