Description

In her work, Beatriz Colomina considers concepts of space through lenses of architecture, image, the body and gender. Her talk here, presented in conjunction with Klein / Olson, discusses these in relation to the work of B. Ingrid Olson and Astrid Klein.

Colomina is an internationally renowned architectural historian and theorist who has written extensively on questions of architecture and media. Her books include Privacy and Publicity: Modern Architecture as Mass Media (Cambridge: The MIT Press, 1994) and Sexuality and Space (New York: Princeton Architectural Press, 1992), both of which were awarded the prestigious International Book Award by the American Institute of Architects.
