Lecture: Francois Roche, new-territories, R&Sie(n), [elf/b^t/c]

October 29, 2012 at 6:00 pm

François Roche was born in 1961 in Paris. He founded an architecture organization – the name of which changed several times between 1989-2001 – currently called R&Sie(n). Since the organization’s beginnings, Roche sought to articulate contradictions of architecture and to widen the field. It is comparable to a landscape, a device, a singularity – is it an attractive or repulsive curiosity. Today Roche develops a production structure of architecture titled New-Territories, via R&Sie(n). He is an adjunct assistant professor at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation in New York City where he leads an advanced studio. He was also a visiting professor from 2009 to early 2011 within the newly restructured master of architecture post-professional program at the University of Southern California, School of Architecture, Los Angeles. Roche studied in Chalon-sur-Saone, and afterward entered scientific preparatory school in Lyon, France. He left that school prior to graduating, and enrolled at the school of architecture of Versailles and graduated in 1988.
