about the lecture
In For Your Consideration, Molly Hunker will present recent design work that explores the elasticity of the built environment - in other words, how we might understand the breadth and malleability of the material experiences, cultural meanings, and social potential of the world we live in. Through work ranging from public space interventions to novel architectural representation to the protocols of practice, this lecture will look at the possibility for the spaces, objects, and systems of design to operate in a multitude of ways and expand the audience of architecture and design.
Molly is a Wyoming-raised designer and educator and the co-founder of the award-winning practice, SPORTS, with Greg Corso. SPORTS focuses on creating compelling spaces that are catalysts for social activities and connection through the design, realization, and visualization of small interventions in the public realm. SPORTS is the recipient of a 2017 Arch League Prize from the Architectural League of NY, the 2018 Young Architect Award from The Architect’s Newspaper, and a 2017 and 2020 ACSA Faculty Design Award.
Molly received a BA from Dartmouth College and a MArch from UCLA. She has worked for architecture studios and art workshops along the west coast including Talbot McLanahan Architecture, Doug Aitken Workshop, and The LADG. She previously taught at UCLA, Woodbury University, and The University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), where she was the inaugural Douglas A. Garofalo fellow. She is currently an Assistant Professor at Syracuse University School of Architecture.
