Architect Thom Mayne discusses the development of his firm, Morphosis, and its approach to design over four decades. His talk explores the questions that have arisen and how the firm has addressed them.

Thom Mayne is the founder of Morphosis, a collective architectural practice engaged in cross-disciplinary research and design, and co-founder of the Southern California Institute of Architecture. He has been a tenured professor in the Architecture and Urban Design Department at UCLA since 1993 and serves as executive director of the university's Now Institute. Mayne's distinguished honors include the Pritzker Prize (2005), appointment to the President's Committee on the Arts and Humanities (2009), and the AIA Gold Medal (2013).

This program is made possible through the generous support of the Pritzker Foundation and is presented in partnership with The Art Institute of Chicago. Additional support for Thom Mayne's lecture is provided by the Butler-VanderLinden Lecture on Architecture Fund.
