Curtis Roth / LeFevre Fellow

Big Stairs / Knowlton Hall
April 16, 2014 - 5:30pm


Curtis Roth, the 2013-14 LeFevre Emerging Practitioner Fellow at the Knowlton School will present a lecture about his LeFevre-sponsored research and the associated opening of his exhibit in the Banvard Gallery, at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 16 on the Knowlton Big Stairs. Roth's Banvard exhibit, Not Only Are We Not Infinite, We Are Not Even Finite: The Collected Work of The Superimpossible Group, will open immediately following the lecture.

Roth was the recipient of the Richard W. Trott ’61 Distinguished Visiting Professorship at the Knowlton School for the 2012-13 academic year.  He is a recent graduate of the Master of Architecture program at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where his academic concentration was focused within the History Theory and Criticism of Art and Architecture Department, particularly focusing on post-war theories of architecture and, specifically, the histories and theories of nature in the 19th and 20th centuries and their role in restructuring architectural thought.

In addition to his studies in design and criticism, Roth has also worked as a researcher at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, collaborating closely with faculty in the Landscape Architecture Department on a collection of long-term, internationally published research projects; from the role of agronomy in the rise and fall of civilizations, to the history of military-industrial infrastructures and their role in shaping the American Landscape. In addition to his work as a design researcher, Roth has also worked as a project leader with Howeler + Yoon Architecture, where he developed their entry for the 2012 Audi Urban Futures Initiative, a speculative design project which focused on the role of mobility in America’s northeast megacity region.
