The ARCUS Arctic Research Seminar Series brings leading Arctic researchers to Washington, D.C. to share the latest findings and what they mean for decision-making. These seminars will be of interest to federal agency officials, congressional staff, non-governmental organizations, associations, and the public.

This seminar titled Arctic Design Group. Mediating Environments will present the works of the Arctic Design Group that foregrounds design in the act of framing and re-imagining the potential futures of the Arctic, while offering ways of re-engaging with environmental phenomena as malleable design media.  

Matthew Jull, PhD, is an Assistant Professor of Architecture at the University of Virginia School of Architecture and founder and co-Director of the Arctic Design Group (ADG), a design research platform founded with Landscape Urbanist and Assistant Professor Leena Cho at UVA in 2012. With a background in geophysics and architecture, his research explores the potentials of architecture and urban design within the frame of extreme environments and the increasing friction between the built environment and the forces that shape our planet. Funded by grants from the National Science Foundation, the Jefferson Trust, the Graham Foundation, the Rotch Foundation, the UVA Environmental Resilience Institute, the Center for Global Inquiry and Innovation, and the Anchorage Museum, his work with the ADG has been focused on developing design strategies for buildings, cities, and landscapes in the rapidly changing Arctic region. In addition to research collaborations spanning the Arctic, the ADG teaches travelling design studios, seminars, and workshops, and has been featured in publications, exhibitions, symposia, and lectures in the US, Russia, Canada, Norway, Iceland, and Finland. Jull received his M.Arch. from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design and his Ph.D. from Cambridge University; prior to joining UVA, he was an architect at the Pritzker prize winning design practice of Rem Koolhaas/OMA in Rotterdam, NL.

This event is a brown-bag lunch that will be held in the ARCUS D.C. office (1201 New York Avenue, NW Washington D.C. Fourth Floor). Cookies and beverages will be provided.

A live webinar is also available to those unable to attend in person. Instructions for accessing the event online will be sent to webinar registrants prior to the event.
