Confronting Comfort: An Overview by Rosanna Flouty
Saturday, October 15, 2011, 5:30–6 pm
The Comfort Series lectures, a compilation of talks at the Lab given by local and global authorities in a diversity of fields, have shed light on new ways of perceiving and addressing comfort and discomfort in our daily lives on a local and global scale. As we consider comfort over a spectrum of variables through the shifting landscape of urban living, what patterns on the topic have risen? What can we take away from these talks? BMW Guggenheim Lab Public Programs Manager Rosanna Flouty shares her thoughts and insights on the ideas that were introduced throughout the run of the Lab and reflects on how to negotiate those overlapping and diverging thoughts.
