Paul Lewis, a principal at LTL Architects, is a professor and associate dean at Princeton University School of Architecture.

Lecture Title: LTL in Section
Lecture Content: What are the varieties of section, and what effects do they have on form, space, and more importantly social organization? Drawing upon his recently published bestselling book, Manual of Section, Paul will explicate a typology of section and show how each type of section works. Interwoven into the typology, he will present work from his office, LTL Architects to demonstrate how section can be an instrumental design tool. This will include the winning design for an art center in Telluride, recent work at Poster House, Columbia University, Claremont Colleges, Gallaudet University, The ContemporAry Austin and the Hellen Walton Children’s Enrichment Center.
