Neil M. Denari / NMDA
The Baumer Lectures
Neil M. Denari / NMDA: The Baumer Lectures contains transcribed conversations that were part of Neil M. Denari’s appointment as 2015-16 Baumer Distinguished Professor at the Ohio State University and provide a close look at a few recent projects: the Sotoak Extension, the New Keelung Harbor Services Building, and the Sori Yanagi Museum. Essays by Justin Diles, Courtney Coffman, and Kay Bea Jones augment these conversations and highlight a number of elements in both the projects that are presented as well as those from NMDA’s larger body of work. Each project documented here is the result of a practice that has continued to tackle multiple facets of the discipline simultaneously while evolving a trajectory of work that continues to exhibit the aspects that made it original in the first place.
