viaBooks launches Dirt in Chicago
Friday, March 16 at Graham Foundation (Chicago)
6PM, Graham Foundation, Madlener House, 4 West Burton Place, Chicago
Dirt (MIT Press, 2012) presents a selection of works that share dirty attitudes: essays, interviews, excavations, and projects that view dirt not as filth but as a medium, a metaphor, a material, a process, a design tool, a narrative, a system. Join Dirt co-editor Megan Born, MArch/MLA'08 and the Graham Foundation for a lively discussion about the newest from viaBooks, the student-led publication from the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Design. Free & open to the public.
Dirt is the latest installment from the student-edited and student-managed publication entity viaPublications, a collaborative of interdisciplinary students, professors, and professionals, founded by graduate students at the University of Pennsylvania School of Design.
Megan Born is a landscape and architectural designer at James Corner Field Operations in New York, a lecturer at the Yale School of Architecture and a graduate of PennDesign (M.Arch/MLA, 2008).
Following the talk, copies of Dirt will be available for purchase. A book signing and reception will be held in the library.
