Artists, designers, and architects strive to retain craftsmanship as they transition from analogue to digital tools for the design and fabrication of their work. Andrew Kudless, UTSA School of Architecture Distinguished Visiting Critic lectures on strategies for maintaining craftsmanship and the role of material and performance in the design process.

Kudless is a designer based in San Francisco where he is an Associate Professor of Architecture at the California College of the Arts. In 2004, he founded Matsys, a design studio exploring the emergent relationships between art, architecture, engineering, biology, and computation. The work of Matsys has been exhibited internationally and is in the permanent collections of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Centre Pompidou in Paris, and the FRAC Centre in Orleans, France.

A collaboration between The McNay Art Museum and UTSA, this lecture is free to UTSA architecture students and McNay members. A reception precedes the talk at 6:30 pm, and visitors are invited to visit the structure on the museum grounds created by students in the Advanced Topics Studio course offered through the School of Architecture.
