Fellow-sheep & Cattle-lysts: A Panel On Wayward Wayfinding, with SARUP fellows Sarah Aziz, Debbie Chen, & Lindsey Krug
This lecture is Sponsored by Fitzhugh Scott.
The Fellows Panel Discussion will bring together the 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 UW–Milwaukee SARUP Fellows Sarah Aziz, Debbie Chen, and Lindsey Krug to share and reflect upon the pedagogical, design, and research work completed during their time at SARUP.
Sarah Aziz is a Visiting Assistant Professor with an Emphasis on Issues of Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion at the University of Colorado Denver. A recipient of a Macdowell Fellowship, she has taught at Texas Tech University and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, where she was the 2020-2021 Fitzhugh Scott Innovation in Design Fellow. She holds a B.Arch. from Liverpool John Moores University and an M.Arch. from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
Debbie Chen is the 2021-2022 Architectural Activism Fellow at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee School of Architecture and Urban Planning, where she is exploring the intersection of decarbonization and architectural representation. Occupying the territory between architecture and infrastructure, her work is interested in activating cross-disciplinary, entangled, and multi-scalar frameworks of environmental design to shape the lived experience. Recognizing the agency of non-living things, her projects often leverage material ontologies to produce rhizomatic understandings of our environment across human and network scales. Considerations of representation, story-telling, and phenomenal experimentation all figure into a more holistic design approach in order to render the invisible yet wide-reaching forces of infrastructure palpable, expanding our understanding of (and relationship to) the built environment.
A licensed architect in New York, Chen’s “Municipal C.H.U.W.” proposal for a localized waste management institution in NYC was awarded the Holcim Awards Next Generation 1st Prize in North America in 2014. She has previously served as Project Architect at Morphosis and as Project Lead at LTL Architects. Debbie received a Master of Architecture from Princeton University and graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Southern California.
is a designer and researcher based in Chicago, as well as the 2020-21 Fitzhugh Scott Advancing Contemporary Theories Fellow at SARUP. She holds a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Pennsylvania, and a Master of Architecture from the Harvard University Graduate School of Design. Through the lens of the architectural user as a body in space, her work focuses on how design solidifies and reinforces bodily taboos, hierarchies, and inequities into built form, and seeks alternative futures for architectural inhabitants.
Krug has contributed to spatial research investigating human rights abuses against protesters in the 2014 Euromaidan protests in Ukraine, on-going and projected climate risks of melting permafrost in Russia, and relationships between gender, typology, and the architectural generic. Her research titled “Women Offer You Things,” a study of print magazines, gender, and semiotics of the countryside, was exhibited at the Guggenheim in New York as part of the exhibition Countryside, The Future curated by OMA/AMO. Most recently, her collaborations with Sarah Aziz have been recognized by the Ragdale Foundation of Lake Forest, Illinois, and exhibited at the Chicago Architectural Club. Krug has previously practiced at WOJR, SITU Research, ODA, and Studio Gang.
All lectures are free and open to the public.
