MDC - Jennifer Yoos, FAIA: Material / Immaterial
Presented by: Jennifer Yoos, FAIA
AIA/CES (HSW) Learning Units: 1.0 Hours
Course release date: February, 2014.
In this 60-minute course, filmed live at AIA Californias 2013 Monterey Design Conference, Jennifer Yoos, FAIA, Principal of VJAA (the American Institute of Architect’s 2012 Firm of the Year), illustrates how VJAA’s research-based design approach is applied to diverse building programs, locations, and scales.
Jennifer illustrates the idea of “materiality” that emphasizes craftsmanship and research into new material systems and structure. She then discusses “immateriality” by illustrating how buildings interact with climate and changing uses over time. Jennifer weaves these ideas together with her firm’s sensitive and striking designs of museums, libraries, hotels, exhibits and a rowing club.
