Jonah Rowen: Labyrinths (November 11, 2011)01:00:49

Hernan Diaz Alonso welcomes Jonah Rowen to the school as a new faculty member.

Jonah Rowen begins by distinguishing conceptual from literal labyrinths, as illustrated by drawings of Leon Krier and Piranesi. He proposes seven characteristics of labyrinths. He shows his own recently completed projects including a hotel and an archive containing a vault.

After Rowan’s talk, Todd Gannon joins him to discuss how the issues he raised touch on contemporary and historical debates.
