Influx book launch. Wed Sep 17, 6:30pm @ EMPAC


Dean Evan Douglis of the Rensselaer School of Architecture cordially invites you to attend the launch event and reception for Influx, a historic all-school publication that embodies the School of Architecture’s transdisciplinary approach to education, consistent theme of radical speculation, innovative pedagogical methods, and research addressing major global challenges.

Influx features student work, school exhibitions, and degree program information from Fall 2010 to Spring 2012. This compilation has been an ambitious undertaking, involving students, faculty, and school partners across the globe. Each contributor to Influx has demonstrated and shares a profound commitment to the pursuit of architecture as a tool for transformation. Dean Douglis states in his message to readers,

“United not only in the shared belief that the sustenance and transmission of knowledge from one generation to the next is a noble endeavor, but also a fundamental necessity for the development of new forms of cultural production in architecture, the contributors in this book interpret their research as both speculative and projective, and at the same time capable of moving into the public domain as a real and substantial agent for change.”

Please join us in celebration of this extraordinary publication. We would like to formally recognize and commend the achievements of the brilliant students and faculty showcased in this book, and celebrate the release of a remarkable tome of visionary architectural insight.
