Join the Cultural Arts Division and Texas Society of Architects for Visionary Voices: Marc Fornes. French-born, Brooklyn-based architect and designer Marc Fornes is a leading expert in computational design. His solo projects, and those with his studio, THEVERYMANY, include collaborations with Louis Vuitton and Yayoi Kusama and the late Zaha Hadid. His prototypical structures and unique organic environments are included in the permanent collections of the Centre Pompidou, the FRAC Centre and other institutions. For Visionary Voices, Fornes will discuss his upcoming installation for the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.
Launched in 2017, the series encourages thoughtful consideration of the role of public art and its relationship to public spaces, examining the often blurred line between art and architecture. The lectures also highlight the participating artists’ bodies of work and offer a sneak peek at commissions they are executing for the City of Austin.
