On March 15, 2021, TAAST welcomed Ilona Gaynor in a lecture for the University of Tennessee College of Architecture and Design. Ilona Gaynor’s work investigates the structural and material dimensions of capital, and is rooted in seeking to apply languages and form to non-visual experiences across a range of media, including films, texts, drawings, theatre and installations. Her work has been disseminated internationally through exhibitions, workshops, lectures and publications, most notably at The Design Museum (London), STUK (Leuven), FACT (Liverpool), the Lisbon Architecture Triennale (Portugal), Weiβer Elephant Gallery (Berlin), Biennale Internationale Design Saint-Etienne (France) and the HMKV (Dortmund). She also serves as a juror and teaches across design, fine art and architecture and is currently an assistant professor in Designed Objects at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. || A student organization at the UT College of Architecture and Design called TAAST (The Annual All-College Spring Thing) presents a week of student-organized workshops, creative pursuits and community-building activities. TAAST 2021 celebrated the 50th anniversary of the annual event, and TAAST student leaders presented lectures that celebrated the uniqueness and overlap of the four disciplines in the college: Architecture, Design, Interior Architecture and Landscape Architecture. .
