Germane Barnes Lecture
Germane Barnes’s (b. Chicago, IL) research and design practice investigates the connection between architecture and identity. Learning from historical data and perspectives from within architecture as well as cultural and ethnic studies, he examines how the built environment influences the social and cultural experience. His research and design contributions have been published and exhibited in several international publications and institutions. Most notably, DesignMiami/ and Curbed.com, where he was named a member of the 2015 Class of Young Guns, under-the-radar professionals who are busy challenging the status quo in the design industry.
