Robert Mangurian introduces Jennifer Siegal, and remembers her as coming from one of the finest graduate classes that SCI-Arc has produced. As a preface Mangurian begins by discussing his Whiz Bang Quick City project near Woodstock, NY in 1971. This instant town of cardboard domes and inflatables touches on the nomadic transience that interests Siegal. Mangurian discusses how Siegal’s name began to circulate through numerous publications and exhibition as an emerging voice in architecture. Upon taking the podium, Siegal tells a quick story about her acceptance to SCI-Arc.
