Farshid Moussavi

In the final lecture of our ‘Architecture and Freedom’ season, newly elected Royal Academician, Farshid Moussavi, discusses architecture’s function as an agent in shaping everyday life.

For architect and newly elected Royal Academician, Farshid Moussavi, architecture ‘produces platforms for the way people engage with uses of buildings’ – an idea which she has explored through practice, education and research. A co-founder of Foreign Office Architects, which won international attention with the Yokohama Ferry Terminal, Moussavi established her own practice in 2011, which has since completed the acclaimed Cleveland Museum of Contemporary Art in Ohio. Moussavi is Professor in Practice of Architecture at Harvard University Graduate School of Design, and has published a number of books deriving from her research and teaching. In this, the final lecture of the ‘Architecture and Freedom’ season, Moussavi discusses her influential research into ‘function’ and the role of architecture as an active agent in shaping the culture of everyday life.
