"Beyond Patronage" Architecture Symposium in Buffalo
Hansy Better Barraza (Associate Professor, Architecture) will participate in a day-long symposium at the University of Buffalo’s School of Architecture and Planning, October 17, 2012.
“Beyond Patronage” is a symposium that brings together architects, designers and scholars to explore notions of architectural patronage today and their implications in design, reserach and practice. Questions addressed are: How are architectural practices today shifting away from traditional structures of patronage that have typically characterized the profession, field and discipline? How have new notions of power and empowerment shaped relationships between practitioners and other agencies, initiating new priorities, design strategies and practice models.
