July 7, 2015: Lecture "Moody Objects" by Matias del Campo, University of Michigan

On July 7th, 2015, it was our pleasure to have Matias del Campo, Associate Professor of Architecture at the Taubman College School of Architecture, University of Michigan, to present his lecture entitled "Moody Objects."

Chilean born and Austrian native, Matias del Campo graduated with distinction from the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, Austria. In 2003 he co-founded SPAN Architects in Vienna, together with Sandra Manninger. The globally acting practice is best known for their sophisticated application of contemporary technologies in architectural production. Their award winning architectural designs are informed by Baroque geometries, romantic atmospheres, and biological systems. Matias del Campo´s obsessive explorations of contemporary moods are fueled by the opulent repertoire of materialization in nature in combination with cutting edge technologies, as well as form as a driving force in design at large. Apart of his role as head of design at SPAN Architects Matias del Campo serves as Associate Professor of Architecture at Taubman College School of Architecture, University of Michigan
