Brandon Clifford - On the Performance of Architecture in Three Acts – Practice, Perception, and Play

Brandon Clifford is in pursuit of new architectures that are born of ancient, dismissed, and derogatory concepts. He experiments with these abandoned ways of thinking in order to produce new paradigms; in turn, transforming the ways we think about the past and the future. But, this creative method is not predictable. It is full of pivots, dead-ends, and unexpected turns. Clifford will reflect on this ten-year experiment, undoing things we think we already know in favor of unknown potentials.

Brandon Clifford is the Founders Rome Prize Fellow in Architecture and Assistant Professor at the School of Architecture and Planning, Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
