TEDxCarletonU 2010 - Manuel A. Báez - Crystal & Flame: Form and Process

Architect and Associate Professor Manuel A. B?ez incorporates the theme of the Crystal & Flame as he presents an overview of his architectural research and work. The metaphoric theme relates to the ubiquitous correlation between static form/structure and dynamic process or constraints and freedom that is intrinsically found throughout abstract, physical and biological phenomena. For further information on the theme please visit: http://manuelbaez.pbworks.com/TEDx-presentation Associate Professor Manuel A. B?ez has been at the Carleton University Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism since January of 2001. Previously, he taught in the United States at The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in New York City and Rhode Island School Design in Providence, RI. His work as an architect, artist and researcher draws inspiration from the generative potential of the forms, structures and integrative systems generated by elemental processes that exist throughout the natural environment. His educational concerns, interests and objectives are focused on the development of teaching methods and procedures derived from the research. B?ez has extensively exhibited and lectured on his work and research in various international conferences and institutions. The work has been funded by such agencies and institutions as the Canada Council for the Arts the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, the New York Foundation for the Arts, the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art, Cranbrook Academy of Art and Carleton University.
