Sean Lally, Weathers
2012 League Prize Lecture
Recorded June 21, 2012
In this recording of his League Prize lecture, Sean Lally discusses the unique design philosophy of his studio, which uses energy (light, sound, temperature, etc) instead of line as a guiding principle. For Lally, this means a transition from the idea of “architecture as medium” to “designing our active context as architecture.” Watch the full lecture to learn more.
