Ahlquist Lectures At Carnegie Mellon University

Assistant Professor Sean Ahlquist gave a lecture entitled “Sensorial Architectures” at Carnegie Mellon School of Architecture on February 19, 2018. Part of the Alan H. Rider Distinguished Lecture series, Alquist presented research on the sensorial capabilities of material systems and computational design. The lecture description reads,

“As knowledge in the area of computational design advances, larger questions arise toward the agency of material-driven architectures as mechanisms for human interaction. This lecture investigates the instrumentalization of textile-based systems as structural, socio-spatial architectures, particularly considering sensory and behavioral ramifications for children with autism spectrum disorder.”
