Join us February 10th, 2017 for a lecture by Ersela Kripa and Stephen Mueller, principals and founders of AGENCY.
AGENCY is an interdisciplinary practice engaging contemporary culture through architecture, urbanism, and advocacy, directed by Ersela Kripa and Stephen Mueller. Their projects range from media environments and material assemblies, to guerrilla infrastructures, architectural projects, and speculative urban research. Seeking productive anomalies in the overlooked, the under-represented, and the everyday, the practice identifies, synthesizes, and transforms emerging urban paradigms. AGENCY upcoming book, entitled FRONTS: Security and the Developing World will be published in 2017 by ORO Editions.
Kripa and Mueller are the recipients of the Rome Prize in Architecture from the American Academy in Rome, and are fellows of The MacDowell Colony and the New York Foundation for the Arts. Kripa and Mueller were identified recently as Emerging Talent by ARCHITECT Magazine. AGENCY work has been exhibited internationally, through invited participation at the Venice Biennale, Storefront for Art and Architecture, the Hong Kong-Shenzhen Bi-City Biennale on Architecture and Urbanism, Sofia Architecture Week, Eme3 in Barcelona, and others.
AGENCY has recently moved to the U.S.-Mexico border, where it is actively working on pressing bi-national issues.
