Cowgill 300

In May of 2016, Nicholas Coates (B.Arch 2015) set out to conduct a worldwide topic of study titled, “The Corner: A Marker of the New, A Memory of the Past” as part of the 2015 SOM Prize in Architecture, Design, and Urban Design. Through this study, travel-based research encompassing two continents, nine countries, 39,000 miles, and 159 days was undertaken to observe and dissect the moments of the corner leading to the following question: how does an architect direct a beautiful turn? In his lecture, Nick will be sharing stories from his journeys though many different cultures, landscapes, and built environments chronicling his post graduate time spent around the world. poster
