This popular series of lectures and presentations by artists, architects, historians, and critics is free and open to the public each Tuesday from September 12 through November 14 (no lecture October 31).
Sheila Kennedy is a Professor of Architecture at MIT and a founding Principal of KVA Matx. Matx is a practice recognized for innovations in architecture and material research, and the design of “next-generation infrastructure” to assist with the ever-changing public needs.
Kennedy directs Matx, working with business leaders, institutions and public agencies to design clean energy products, as well as “soft” infrastructure for networked cities and urbanizing regions.
In an MITei news release, Kennedy was described as an “insightful and original thinker who is designing new ways of working, learning, leading and innovating.”
For Tuesday Evenings, Kennedy presents selected KVA projects and shares the guiding principles of an architecture practice recognized for its creative and conscientious approach to our built environment.
