Laskey Charette Kickoff Lecture: Jonathan Louie and Nicole McIntosh

Friday, February 16 | 5:30 PM

Steinberg Hall, Steinberg Auditorium
Steinberg Hall, St. Louis, MO

Architecture Office is a Zurich-based Swiss American practice led by Nicole McIntosh and Jonathan Louie. Their research and design are influenced by images that create new contexts for architecture.

Their office engages with a variety of scales and typologies, ranging from restaurants and workspaces to exhibition design and houses. Recent work has been exhibited at the Yale Architecture Gallery, the Kunsthaus Glarus, and the 2021 Seoul Biennial of Architecture and Urbanism. As educators, they are the 2023-24 Hyde Chair of Excellence at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. Their contributions to design and research have been awarded by the Architectural League Young Architect’s Prize (2017), ACSA Faculty Design Award (2020), and the Swiss Art Awards (2022). Built projects have been recognized by Architects Newspaper Best of Design Awards (2018, 2019), Interior Design Best of Year Awards (2020), and the Frame Awards (2018). And their most recent publication “Swissness Applied: Learning from New Glarus” won the Deutsches Architekturmuseum Architectural Book Award (2022).

This lecture, part of the Public Lecture Series at WashU's Sam Fox School, is free and open to the public.
