Anthony Morey

The College of Architecture is pleased to announce Hyde Chair Anthony Morey will be the next Hyde speaker giving a lecture entitled, "Storm in a Teacup. Back to questions, back to fragments."

For this lecture, Morey will look at the power of insanity, mischievousness, chaos, sense of loss and a little fantasy to speculate what it means to think, see and create in the current state of the architecture discipline. The lecture will discuss the opportunities of a non-originary architecture/language that is dependent on the power of miscommunication and translation as a means to view oneself and the world from varied vantage points in the aim of achieving a constant layering of delayed purity.

In addition to being this semester’s Hyde Chair, Morey is a Los Angeles based theorist, designer and curator. His interests reside in speculative research and architectural projects. Morey’s work is invested in writing and research in relation to the tensions between text, psychology and image.

Through his research studio YnotWorkshop and partnership in the architectural Office INmo, Morey has been able to investigate and bring to life various pursuits in the creative discipline through such mediums as exhibitions, installations and writings.

Morey is a co-founder of One Night Stand LA, an ongoing curation experiment in cultural representation along with its journal, Morning After. He is also a co-founder of MASKS the Journal, a publication founded while at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design that particularly focuses on the rifts between the subconscious and conscious tensions in the creative arts and the various tangencies within them.

Morey has taught at the Southern California Institute of Architecture and Harvard Graduate School of Design along with being a visiting critic at Pratt, Woodbury, Cal Poly and the University of Miami. His work has been shown in various cities such as Paris, New York, Boston, Miami and Los Angeles; and his writings are widely published.

Morey’s lecture will be held in the Richards Hall, Room 15, UNL city campus, Friday, February, 3rd at 4 pm.
