Mark Rogero is back in Oakland after lecturing at Columbia University. Keith Kaseman, architect and professor in the Architecture, Planning and Preservation Department, asked Mark to be a guest lecturer for the seminar + workshop he's teaching this semester called 'Concrete Obsessions.' Students have been required to cast one form per week researching process, investigating finishes, textures, dimensional properties, concrete mixes, behaviors and utility of concrete casting….all captured on the class blog. It was a great opportunity for students to get feedback on their semester long projects. Mark also had a chance to discuss our most recent work and experiments, as well as the day-to-day activities that take place in our Oakland studio.
Mark and Keith have worked together on several projects including the 9/11 Pentagon Memorial.
