Date & Time: Friday, April 19, 2013 - 3:30pm - 3:45pm


For J-term I went on a month-long adventure through Cuba. It was an exploration of simple living—free of the fast paced, capitalistic, and individualistic pressures of the modern world—through the lens of the built environment. The purpose was to evaluate how architecture influences culture by examining how different values affect the way in which buildings are designed, and as a result, affect the way in which people interact with resources, space, and each other. It became much more then that.

In order to discuss my experience, I will use a combination of videography, photography, and sounds I captured during my month there.
