The Value of Making Space for Criticism in Design

Making space for criticism and discourse in the field of design is essential to the elevation and growth of the craft. Discourse, and the commitment to making space for criticism and reflection, offers new perspectives, balance, and insight. The panel will discuss the role of design criticism, the current state of thoughtful discourse, and the future of criticism in an increasingly digital landscape. Attendees will leave encouraged and better prepared to receive and give criticism and have a greater appreciation for the practice and the contribution it makes to the field of design. Panelists include award-winning arts journalist and editor-in-chief of Sightlines, Jeanne Claire van Ryzin, Emerging Scholar in Design Fellow at UT Austin, architect, and researcher Piergianna Mazzocca, and UTSOA Harwell Hamilton Harris Regent Professor David Heymann, FAIA. Texas Architect magazine editor Aaron Seward will moderate the panel. Refreshments will be provided and the first twenty attendees will receive a free copy of the latest issue of Texas Architect.
