Wed, February 6, 7pm
W.M. Keck Lecture Hall

Intro by Eric Owen Moss

Andrew Zago has over 25 years of professional experience in architecture and education. He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Michigan and a Master of Architecture from Harvard University. In addition to teaching at SCI-Arc, where he is coordinator of Visual Studies, Zago is currently a Clinical Professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago and a frequent visiting critic and lecturer at schools in the US and Europe.

His firm, Zago Architecture, is a recipient of a Progressive Architecture Award, an Award in Architecture from the American Academy of Arts and Letters and a Fellowship Grant from the United States Artists organization. Zago is also a fellow of the American Academy in Rome and a member of the National Register of Peer Professionals of the General Services Administration in Washington. Zago Architecture brings open-ended, creative inquiry to disciplinary concerns in architecture. Noted for its prescient articulation of emerging sensibilities, the practice weds aesthetic studies to the practical art of making buildings and cities. In doing so, Zago Architecture reaffirms the substantial and productive link amongst art, architecture and urbanism.
