Stephen Phillips‘ article “Big, Vast, Powerful, and Contemporary: Picturing Education in LA,” is published in 34 Magazine, No. 11, alongside photos by well-known Dutch photographer Monica Nouwens.
“To be in LA is to be cool and edgy, living at the center of a robust urban network that drives media to the farthest extremes. How does the next generation learn to live in this new world structure? Students are raised not to notice. LA’s schools are big to help students adjust to feeling small. Spaces are vast to contain the population. Environments are powerful to impress the students to behave. The architecture is cool and edgy; it accustoms students to their harsh urban surroundings, as they learn to act-right, hang-out, and just fit-in.”
Stephen Phillips was invited to join-in the multi-day “HI-C” Critical Studies Seminar by Sylvia Lavin at UCLA Department of Architecture; invited speakers to include Yves Alain Bois and Jeffrey Schnapp.

Stephen Phillips co-hosts the Temporalism Conference and Exhibition with Branden Hookway at Cornell AAP in New York City: 50 W 17th Street, 2nd Floor. 3:00pm -7:30pm.
Temporalism posits time and motion as central to the most compelling architectural thought and practice today. From the adoption of new media, including computer animation design software, to the increased complexity of organizational planning and infrastructural networks, temporal systems increasingly determine the character of our essays4u.net built environment. This conference brings together a diverse group of architectural historians and theorists to present and discuss discipline-specific temporal concerns relevant to wider historic, cultural, and technological contexts. An intensive half-day event, Temporalism will define a rich and lively zone of debate, with implications for future inquiry into the role of temporality in architecture practice and culture.
Speakers will include: Joan Ockman (Columbia), Spyridon Papapetros (Princeton), Stephen Phillips (Cal Poly), Felicity Scott (Columbia), David Leatherbarrow (Penn), Branden Hookway (Cornell), Ed Keller (Columbia/SCI-Arch), Helene Furjan (Penn) and Antoine Picon (Harvard).
