I posted recently about a great looking spring lecture series at SCI-Arc in Los Angeles. Not to be outdone by its neighbor to the north, San Diego has assembled a top-drawer raft of speakers for the Master Architects Lecture Series: In Celebration of Louis Kahn and the Salk Institute. Top names include Thom Mayne, Frank Gehry, David Adjaye and Steven Holl.
Co-sponsored by the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, which Kahn designed on a La Jolla hillside, and the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, the series begins this Sunday, February 8th, with Frank Gehry and continues through May. The six lectures will be held at the Salk Institute and MCASD and cost $30 per person. Other speakers include Enrique Norten and Tod Williams and Billy Tsien.
This looks to be a great chance to hear some of architecture's leading lights, so for those in the San Diego area, this is a group of talks that is not to be missed.
