Sciame Lecture Series: Jean-Pierre Pranlas-Descours presents "Architecture and Landscape"
141 Convent Ave
New York, NY 10031
Jean-Pierre Pranlas-Descours, architect, urban planner, author and professor of architecture, has developed a permanent work on the articulation of scales, defining himself as an architect of the territory. From the drawing of shelves to furniture in a library to the project of a large metropolitan area, Jean-Pierre Pranlas-Descours inscribes his work in a continuity of thought creating situations in which people thrive.
In order to serve this ambition, all projects are linked by a reflection on the materiality through which all architectural thought is embodied. Everything is a subject of architecture, light, materials, thresholds, and continuities. Primarily as an architect, Pranlas-Descours develops his activity in built buildings, drawn territories, theoretical writings and a teaching activity centered on the architectural project as a creative process. Professor Pranlas-Descours will be teaching as a Visiting Professor in the fall 2019 semester at the Bernard and Anne Spitzer School of Architecture.
