David Gissen is the author of books, essays, exhibitions and experimental writings and projects about environments, landscapes, cities, and buildings from our time and the historical past.  David is an associate professor at the California College of the Arts and a visiting critic at numerous schools in the United States and Europe where he lectures and teaches in the areas of architecture, urban, and landscape history and theory, writing and design. 
In this talk, David examines the ideas behind a series of experimental and conceptual texts and writing workshops that he completed this past year. Taken together, these writing projects reopen historical debates regarding the relationship of language and architecture, while suggesting alternative forms for the representation of the built environment.
