Keller Easterling | Yale, New Haven
Keller Easterling is an architect and writer. Her most recent book, Extrastatecraft: The Power of Infrastructure Space (Verso, 2014), examines global infrastructure networks as a medium of polity. Another recent book, Subtraction (Sternberg Press, 2014), considers building removal or how to put the development machine into reverse. An ebook essay, The Action is the Form (Strelka Press, 2012) previews some of the arguments in Extrastatecraft. Other books include: Enduring Innocence: Global Architecture and its Political Masquerades (MIT, 2005), which researched familiar spatial products in difficult or hyperbolic political situations around the world, and Organization Space: Landscapes, Highways and Houses in America (MIT, 1999), which applied network theory to a discussion of American infrastructure. Ms. Easterling is also the co-author (with Richard Prelinger) of Call it Home: The House that Private Enterprise Built, a laserdisc/DVD history of US suburbia from 1934-1960. She has published web installations including: “Extrastatecraft”, “Wildcards: a Game of Orgman”, and “Highline: Plotting NYC”. Ms. Easterling’s research and writing was included in the 2014 Venice Biennale, and she has been exhibited at Storefront for Art and Architecture in New York, the Rotterdam Biennale, and the Architectural League in New York. Ms. Easterling has lectured and published widely in the United States and abroad. Ms. Easterling taught at Columbia before coming to Yale.

Carrie Strickland and William Neburka / Works Partnership Architecture: “The Bowstring Trust House.”
Works Partnership Architecture is a progressive architectural design studio located in the Pacific Northwest. Carrie Strickland and William Neburka launched W.PA together in 2005. W.PA has since established a design approach rooted in clear conceptual diagrams applied across a wide spectrum of project types while responding to individual site, program, and environmental requirements. W.PA’s approach walks a line between sexy and stern and echoes simplicity in the face of ever evolving complexity, a quiet amid the cacophony of the newest. Over the past ten years, W.PA has been presented with more than 25 design awards and has been lauded on a national scale for notable work and contributions to design, including the 2013 AIA NW&P Region Emerging Firm award, a place in Architectural Record’s 2010 Design Vanguard publication, and a 2010 Progressive Architecture award.

Robert Sabbatini, Charles Brucker, and Brodie Bain: “Creating a Vision: A Landscape Framework for the UO Campus”
Refined Framework: University of Oregon Campus Physical Framework Vision; U of O Campus Planning, Design, & Construction; Robert Sabbatini AICP FASLA, PLACE, Perkins + Will, May 22, 2015
Building upon the traditions, policies, and patterns developed in the Oregon Experiment and embodied in the UO Campus Plan, the University of Oregon engaged nationally renowned campus planners, landscape architects, and architects to develop the UO Campus Physical Framework Vision. The project supplements and brings greater specificity to the Campus Plan by creating a comprehensive framework vision for the campus landscape, open spaces, and future building areas and uses. Using the existing landscape armature as a foundation, the project explores potential space needs and how future improvements can enhance the character of the campus landscape. Project consultants will describe how the project provides tools that better inform decision-making while preserving the campus’ beauty and functionality.
