Sunday Evening Lecture – Joeb Moore on “Historic Preservation & Modernism in Dialogue “
July 14 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Architect Joeb Moore will speak on “Historic Preservation & Modernism in Dialogue” at the Stonington Free Library. This event is free and open to the public.
Joeb Moore is principal of Joeb Moore + Partners, Architects, an architecture and design firm in Greenwich, Connecticut. He is the recipient of more than fifty AIA New England, AIA CT, and AIA NY Design Awards since founding his practice in 1993. The firm’s work and process focus on the relationship between landscape, architecture, and art.
Joeb Moore explains that architecture as an art form operates in a time machine, weaving together the spaces/places of the past and future. He will discuss the origin, myths and scenes that have grounded architecture as a social art, while laying the framework for presenting three of his recent projects thru the lens of space, place, time and culture.
Each of his projects demonstrates a profound interest in his precise, creative buildings and landscapes responding to their environments and ecologies of space. Joeb explores the interface between the historical and natural histories of a place, and the tension between the traditional past and inventive future in architecture. He is committed to the ideal that architecture is a material, social art form which cunningly engages with its visual, social, and political history. Great architecture should deepen human experience as a crucible and harbinger. It should engage our prosaic rituals while also elevating our awareness of a larger, ever changing world.
