MODU—Architecture Section Head Phu Hoang and Assistant Professor of Practice in the Architecture Section Rachely Rotem—will discuss their recent book, Field Guide to Indoor Urbanism, as part of the Society of Fellows of the American Academy in Rome’s Tuesday Talks. Landscape Section Head Kristi Cheramie will moderate.
MODU will explore their concept that intersects architecture, urbanism, and interiors. The conversation will span three global cities—New York, Rome, and Tokyo—exploring forms of indoor urbanism in each city and highlighting a more open relationship between architecture and the environment. They will discuss design projects and environmental research, which will raise the essential question: in the face of the climate crisis, what is architecture’s capacity to change?
