CAP Lecture Series: Brittany Utting & Daniel “DJ” Jacobs

Thursday, Oct 3rd @ 12:15 p.m. - 1:15 p.m.

Brittany Utting is an assistant professor of architecture at Rice University and cofounder of the research and design collaborative HOME-OFFICE. Her work examines the relationship between architecture, collective life, and environmental care. She is the editor of Architectures of Care: From the Intimate to the Common (Routledge, 2023), which examines how spaces of care shape our affective, material, and social forms, from the most intimate scale of the body to our planetary commons. She is a guest editor of the special issue Log 60: The Sixth Sphere with Albert Pope (Winter/Summer 2024). This issue will interrogate the technosphere’s spatial, environmental, and material expressions, exploring how design can imagine alternative climate futures.

Her design practice, HOME-OFFICE, explores architecture as an environmental medium through speculative designs, experimental representation, and exhibition.
