Tracing Intentions :: The Founding of TAC - The Architects’ Collaborative


When: 3.10.15, 7-9pm
Where: Otis House Auditorium, 141 Cambridge Street, Boston, MA 02114

In 1945, five of the eventual seven young architects asked Walter Gropius to join them in forming one of the most historic collaborations, The Architects Collaborative.  Gropius shared a belief in the collaborative process, research reveals the lived experiences of the young architects prior to forming The Architects Collaborative show a belief in a collaborative society to bring about a world at peace through modern architecture.  Their idealistic intent in concert with the idealism of the time, it is argued, made all the difference in the culture of the firm TAC and in specific the formation of their early, and still vital, housing project Six Moon Hill in Lexington, Massachusetts. Norwich University Professor Wendy Cox presents her recent research on the lives, decisions, and work of the original young architects to join The Architects' Collaborative.
