Faculty Talk: Stephen Slaughter - Conditions of Collaboration: PHAT and Watts
Friday, March 26, 1pm
W.M. Keck Lecture Hall
Intro by Chris Genik
Stephen Slaughter has been living, teaching and working in Los Angeles, California since 1995. After graduating with a Masters in Architecture from Ohio State University, and working in Thom Mayne's studio—Morphosis, Slaughter has worked in close collaboration with a number of highly respected and influential architects including Gary Bates (Space Lab), Wes Jones (Jones, Partners: Architecture) and George Yu (Design Office/George Yu Architects).
PHAT, a four man, multi-disciplinary design collaborative he co-founded with Nathaniel Belcher, pursues exhibition work and has shown at the Studio Museum in Harlem; ArchiLab in Orleans, France; and the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne. Slaughter's most recent endeavor as Project Coordinator and Design Architect for the Watts House Project—a collaborative art work in the shape of a neighborhood redevelopment project—pairs him with artist Tanya Aguiniga in the pursuit of renovating a single family residence in the shadows of the Watts Towers.
