Justin Diles / KSA LeFevre Fellow

Gui Auditorium / Knowlton Hall
April 3, 2013 - 5:45pm


Justin Diles will present a lecture titled "What else can we do?(!)" in Knowlton Hall’s Gui Auditorium at 5:45PM on Wednesday, April  3. A reception following the lecture will take place in the Knowlton Hall Jury Space. The lecture and reception are free and open to the public.

Diles is the Howard E. LeFevre ’29 Emerging Practitioner Fellow for the 2012-13 academic year. The LeFevre Fellowship is awarded annually to an architect who is just beginning to make their mark on the profession. It affords the practitioner a platform to develop their research, culminating in spring semester with a monograph or exhibition in the KSA’s Banvard Gallery. The Fellowship program has brought rising talent to the KSA for over a decade, such as Andrew Kudless and Karl Chu. Diles’ LeFevre Fellowship research centers on the architectural implications of complex structural behavior, particularly failure through vibration and buckling. Prior to his fellowship at the KSA, he taught design studios for four years at the University of Applied Arts Vienna in the master class studio of Greg Lynn.

Diles has led numerous workshops on contemporary design techniques, most recently at the 2011 Smart Geometry Workshop at the Royal Danish Academy in Copenhagen. He was a lecturer at the University of Pennsylvania where he taught in the post-professional program. Diles received his Bachelor's Degree in Architecture from Washington University in St. Louis and his Master of Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania in 2006, where he was awarded the Faculty Prize for distinguished work.
