Sixth htc.Workshop: February 20-22at PCA and Miami Beach Urban Studios


The sixth htc.Workshop, organized by College of Architecture + The Arts Associate Professor David Rifkind, will occur February 20th to 22nd. Rifkind started the htc.Workshop in 2008 as a semi-annual symposium, with funding from the Graham Foundation. It has continued annually with support from the Cejas Faculty Grant Fund, The Wolfsonian-FIU, and the FIU Department of Architecture.

“The htc.Workshop introduces students to new research by emerging scholars studying modern architecture and urbanism in [understudied areas like] Latin America, Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe,” said Rifkind. “Students have an opportunity to discuss the work with scholars whose research has the potential to dramatically change the way we understand the built environment.”
