Architecture In Place


For this lecture at the University of South Florida, Noah Biklen focused on recent projects that form a strong sense of place, with a particular interest in facades that interface between a building’s site and interior with approachable, dynamic shells that minimize energy use.

“The art of making a place be creative and act reactively to inhabitation is the alchemy of architecture. All spaces matter. It is important to take as much pleasure from the workings of buildings as from the image of buildings – finding design opportunities in the so called back-of-house.”
—Noah Biklen
