Lecture at the University of Portsmouth – School of Architecture

On February 4, Rafael Viñoly Architects’ Andrea Lamberti will give a lecture at the University of Portsmouth – School of Architecture on why the relationship to nature and the outdoors has been essential to ideas about learning and the forming of academic communities.

Ms. Lamberti will explore how access to healing gardens and views are understood to be essential to fostering wellness. How contemporary campuses focused on learning, biomedical research and health build on these principles yet due to urban conditions and planning frameworks, the campus green is transformed as a result. Citing three recent works by Rafael Viñoly Architects, New York University Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates; The Rockefeller University River Campus in New York City; and the new Stanford Hospital in Stanford, California, Ms. Lamberti will illustrate this phenomenon, incorporating principles for sustaining the environment and the communities they serve.
