Marc Manack and Frank Jacobus, the former a founding principal and the latter a principal of SILO AR+D, an award winning architectural, research and design collaborative, will share their insights into the evolving role of the architect in relation to contemporary design, technology and changing perceptions of the built environment.
While they, like other architects, still deal with bricks and mortar, glass, steel and other traditional building elements, the two men have sought out and experimented in unexpected ways with new, non-traditional materials and techniques, employing them in the design and making of temporary as well as permanent structures, installations and objects.
The work of the two architects has been published widely and has been featured in ARCHITECTURE, Dwell, Slate, Fast Company and the Wall Street Journal.
