UT’s College of Architecture and Design will host Nataly Gattegno, architect and co-founder of San Francisco­–based Future Cities Lab, at 5:30 p.m. Monday, April 10.

The lecture is part of the college’s 2016–17 Robert B. Church Memorial Lecture Series. It will be held in the McCarty Auditorium, Room 109 in the Art and Architecture Building. The lecture is free and open to the public.

Future Cities Lab is an experimental design studio that explores the intersections of art and design using advanced fabrication technologies, robotics, responsive building systems, and public space. Gattegno’s lecture will explore current built and speculative work by the studio.

In addition to leading Future Cities Lab, Gattegno serves as an associate professor and chair of graduate architecture at the California College of the Arts. She has previously taught at Cornell University, the University of Michigan, and the University of Virginia. She earned degrees from Princeton University and St John’s College, Cambridge.

Gattegno’s lecture offers continuing education units and will be streamed live.

For 43 years, UT’s College of Architecture and Design has hosted leading architects and design professionals through its Robert B. Church Memorial Lecture Series, the Governor’s Chair Lecture Series, and the General Shale Lectures to enrich the education of its students and elevate the profession in the community. In 2016–17, more than a dozen professionals from around the world will lecture at the college.
