Virtual - Zoom

The School of Architecture presents a public lecture by Chris Cornelius, followed by a Q&A. 

A citizen of the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin, Chris Cornelius is an educator, designer and consultant whose research and practice focuses on the architectural translation of culture – in particular, American Indian culture. He is the founding principal of studio:indigenous, a design and consulting practice that specializes in serving American Indian clients. He was a cultural consultant and design collaborator with Antoine Predock on the Indian Community School of Milwaukee which won the AIA Design Excellence Award from the Committee on Architecture for Education.

During his presentation, #ChangetheCanon, Cornelius will be speaking about how he incorporates timeless indigenous values in contemporary architecture. Chris’s work posits indigenous design
thinking as a tool to dismantle the apparatus of colonization. Specifically, Chris will speak about how his recent architectural installations serve as indigenous land acknowledgement.
