Yasmin Vobis - Color Space

  • Monday, 15 May 2017 - 6:30pm
AAR Lecture Room
Point Cloud model of the Basilica di San Vitale in Ravenna.

Yasmin Vobis will present recent built work by her office Ultramoderne in conjunction with ongoing research in Rome, which focuses on the underexplored problem of color and tonality in architecture. Her research probes how systems of color interact with modernist preoccupations such as space, structure and organization, and explores ways of drawing color and space simultaneously. 

Yasmin Vobis is the Founders/Arnold W. Brunner/Katherine Edwards Gordon Rome Prize Fellow in Architecture at the American Academy in Rome. She is Principal at Ultramoderne and Critic at the Rhode Island School of Design.

The shoptalk will be held in English. You can watch this event livestreamed at
