Scholars@Hallwalls: Julia Jamrozik, “Growing up Modern”
May 4, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Julia Jamrozik will discuss the research project “Growing up Modern” which she began with Coryn Kempster in 2014. Through original interviews and photographs the project documents the memories and retrospections of children who grew up in some of the most iconic buildings of the early 20th century, such as the Tugendhat Villa in Brno or the Haus Schminke in Loebau. By speaking with the serendipitous inhabitants of architectural visions and documenting their dwellings through the lens of these recollections, the research presents the buildings from a point of view, that of the user, that is not common in architectural history.
Julia Jamrozik, Assistant Professor in the Department of Architecture, has worked as an Architect for at Herzog & de Meuron in Basel and taught at the ETH in Zurich. She is a graduate of the University of Toronto where she studied both architecture and art history and holds an M.Arch. from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. Her research and creative activity focus on play and its spatial and social implications and potential. During her fellowship, she will focus on the project “Growing up Modern.”
Scholars@Hallwalls is a free and open-to-the-public series. Complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvres served.
