One-to-One #14 with Tom Wiscombe




Architect and educator Tom Wiscombe has made major inroads as SCI-Arc‘s BArch chair to establish a stronger connection to the humanities and critical theory in architecture education, founding the school‘s Liberal Arts Program last year and bringing in contemporary philosophers and theorists to spark new dialogues. We discuss his role in the southern Californian architecture culture (particularly in regards to MOCA’s 2013 New Sculpturalism show), how he prioritizes theory in architectural practice and education, and his ongoing Main Museum of Los Angeles project in the city’s enlivened downtown.
