CAP Lecture Series
Lior Galili
3+1 Lessons from New York City

About the Lecture
New York City is the point of departure—the urge, the prism, the key—and the constant conceptual framework for Galili’s work. This lecture introduces how even though it is no longer her official home, the phenomenon of the city has shaped–and is still shaping—Galili’s research, writing, pedagogy, and artistic work. From the hectic Times Square to the voided World Trade Center, the lessons learned from Manhattan on the politics of speed and space; the reverse relations between objects and subjects, and the dynamics of societal control, are constantly formed, reformed, and surprisingly transformed into various other scales and geopolitics. This is an invitation for a journey—or a story—of a highly persistent conceptual structure which then allows for profoundly flexible encounters and exchanges.

Lior Galili joins the Department of Architecture as a Visiting Assistant Professor. Lior is an artist, architect, urban researcher, and educator whose work explores the politics of space in relation to aesthetics, media, and radical imagination.

Her academic experience includes teaching at Cornell AAP, The Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism at Carleton University, The Technion– Israel Institute of Technology, Syracuse University SoA, The Spitzer School of Architecture at City College, and, serving as a teaching assistant at Harvard GSD. Galili often participates as an invited juror in a variety of architecture programs including Princeton SoA, Columbia GSAPP, Harvard GSD, The Cooper Union, Rice SoA and others.

Her professional experience includes working for several NYC firms including the offices of DMA + Shigeru Ban Architects and Michael Sorkin’s Terreform—Center for Advanced Urban Research. Galili is the recipient of the Harvard REAI Research Grant; the Allen D. and Marion L. Rubin Award and the Menschel Fellowship Grant. Her art, design and theoretical work has been published and exhibited in NYC, Boston, Los Angeles, Syracuse, London and Jerusalem.
