Professor is Guest Lecturer in Missouri and Ohio

Monday, October 31, 2016

Assistant Professor of Architecture Marc Manack is a guest speaker on two architecture lecture series this fall. On October 26, Manack spoke at the Drury University Hammons School of Architecture in Springfield, Missouri, as part of the lecture series, Impermanence. The lecture, GOOD|FAST|CHEAP focused on the work of SILO AR+D, the practice he directs with partner Frank Jacobus, and in particular, how their temporary architectural installations influence their permanent building proposals.

On November 1, Manack will deliver the lecture at the annual meeting of the Cleveland chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) in Cleveland, Ohio. The AIA Cleveland lecture, smallness, uses the work of SILO AR+D to discuss not only the unique issues of practice, but to reveal the distinct qualities and possibilities of small-scaled architecture.

Manack joined the School of Architecture faculty in August, coming to UNC Charlotte from the University of Arkansas Fay Jones School of Architecture. He founded SILO A+R in 2009, and since 2012, he and Jacobus have operated the architecture, research, and design practice out of Cleveland, Ohio, and Fayetteville, Arkansas. They added Charlotte as an operational center this fall. 

SILO AR+D has recently received recognition as one of North America’s most promising new architecture firms. In February 2016, SILO AR+D won an Emerging Voices Award from the Architectural League of New York, one of eight practices honored. The online magazine Archipreneuer also named SILO AR+D one of the “10 best architecture start-ups in 2016.”
