Speculation In, On, and Around: Fall Lecture Series Colloquium
Speculation In, On, and Around was a colloquium culminating the Fall 2017 Lecture Series at Princeton University’s School of Architecture coordinated and moderated by M.Arch I student Michaela Friedberg. Participants included Michael Meredith, Beatriz Colomina, and Ellie Abrons.

Given the contemporary condition of a fragmented architectural discourse, it is increasingly necessary to create platforms to analyze the relevance of collection, synthesis, and critique. These platforms should not return us to a time of architectural authority; instead, they prevent the field from completely dissolving into irreconcilable parts. During this semester’s colloquium, we will synthesize the varying positions on the topic of “Speculation” as an architectural tool to identify different positions on this theme—from the design of toilets, to formalized buildings-as-clouds.
