Just when you thought there was no possible new approach to life, some guy -- an architect like Bernard Khoury, for example -- creates a concept about healing through architecture. Khoury, a Modernist whos come to be known as the bad boy of building design, believes that creating a beautiful structure in a spot where crummy things have previously happened is a way to salvage cool old buildings and reclaim bad times. He says he thrives on resuscitating concrete carcasses, and is best known for building a nightclub on the site of a former refugee camp.
Hell speak about his career and concepts at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication.
