Liam O’Brien, Jr. // WOJR
William (Liam) O’Brien, Jr. is the founder and principal of WOJR: Organization for Architecture, a design practice based in Cambridge, MA. O’Brien’s practice engages architecture as a form of cultural production and works across art, architecture, and urbanism, designing objects, buildings, and environments. O’Brien is an Associate Professor in the MIT Department of Architecture, as well as one of the founding members of Collective–LOK. O’Brien has received the Rome Prize Fellowship in Architecture awarded by the American Academy in Rome and the Architectural League Prize for Young Architects and Designers. In 2016, Park Books published WOJR’s first monograph, Room for Artifacts, in which sixteen architectural artifacts designed by WOJR are presented three times, through conceptual drawings, architectural drawings, and images.
AIA/CES LU|HSW credits will be awarded.
All lectures are free and open to the public.
