The Colin Rowe Lecture Series: Juhani Pallasmaa

A conversation on the role of the image in architecture.

In an informal setting and in dialogue with experienced and imaginative guests, The Colin Rowe Lectures aim to discuss the role of the image in architecture, particularly the crucial role of architectural photography. The lectures are considered as an open forum of discussion for architects, photographers, students and the simply curious. All are welcome.

We are delighted to announce that our next lecture will be delivered by Juhani Pallasmaa. Architect SAFA, Hon. FAIA, Int FRIBA, Pallasmaa has been active in urban planning, architecture, and exhibition/product/graphic design since the early 1960s. He has held many positions, including Professor and Dean, Helsinki University of Technology (1991–97); Director of the Museum of Finnish Architecture (1978–83); and Rector of the Institute of Design, Helsinki (1970–71). He has held several visiting professorships in the US (Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., University of Illinois, Washington University in St. Louis, University of Virginia and Yale University) and lectured widely in Europe, North and South America, Africa, and Asia. Pallasmaa has published 50 books and more than 300 essays in 30 languages, including ‘The Embodied Image’ (2011), ‘The Thinking Hand’ (2009), ‘Encounters: Architectural Essays’ (2005) and ‘Encounters 2’ (2012), ‘The Architecture of Image: Existential Space in Cinema’ (2001 and 2007), and ‘The Eyes of the Skin: Architecture and the Senses’ (1996 and 2005).
