Wallenberg Studio Lecture: David Brown, "…then let them go"
David Brown is author of Noise Orders: Jazz, Improvisation, and Architecture (University of Minnesota Press, 2006), a study of design implications of structures that facilitate improvisation in jazz. Developing from that work, his current design research explores process-oriented approaches to urban design based on parameters derived from the interest and concerns of organizations that impact metropolitan development. The Available City, an ongoing design project related to that research, has received support from the Graham Foundation and has been exhibited in the 2012 Venice Architecture Biennale.
Brown is University of Illinois Chicago School of Architecture Associate Director and Associate Professor.
