GSAPP Conversations


In GSAPP Columbia Conversations Podcast episode #14, Dean Amale Andraos speaks with Umberto Napolitano who has taught an advanced architecture studio at Columbia GSAPP in the Spring 2017 Semester. They discuss Napolitano's title for his course, The Form of Density, and his interpretation of "density" with a specific look at Paris. He also speaks about the process of designing his office and the role of the work space in the creative process.

GSAPP Conversations offer a window onto the expanding field of contemporary architectural practice through discussions on the current projects, research, and obsessions of a diverse group of invited guests from emerging and well-established practices. Hosted by Columbia GSAPP’s Dean Amale Andraos, the conversations also feature the School’s influential faculty and alumni, and give students the opportunity to engage architects on issues of concern to the next generation.
