GSA Transformative Practices: Lecture RE: 1.4. Sean Canty

Thursday 28 October
18:00 - 20:00 (SAST)

MS Teams Link

Sean Canty founded Studio SC in 2017, a design practice that activates environments by conjoining discrete geometries, materials, and architectural types. Canty is a Designer and Assistant Professor of Architecture at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, where he teaches architectural design in the Core Design Studios. Prior to joining the faculty at the GSD, Canty held teaching positions at the Cooper Union, University California Berkeley, and California College of the Arts.
In addition to architectural design, Canty has taught classes on descriptive geometry and design media. Studio Sean Canty approaches architecture through an interest in thoughtful engagements with building typologies and geometries. Through combination and juxtaposition, the projects of the studio aim to rethink the spaces of ordinary life. The work of the studio materialises at a variety of scales—from objects to interiors—and explores a range of programmatic types—from domestic environments to cultural spaces.
Canty is one of the founding principals of Office III (OIII), an experimental architectural collective that spans New York, San Francisco, and Cambridge. Selected as a finalist for the 2016 MoMA PS1 Young Architects competition, OIII has completed a Welcome Center for Governors Island and exhibited work at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
