Ralph Roesling | RNT Practice: Vision, Space and Light

NewSchool is pleased to announce a lecture by Ralph Roesling. This event is free and open to all NewSchool students, faculty, alumni, staff, and the general public. If you are unable to attend in person, register for the live stream here.

Architecture is the process of exploring ideas that establish meaning in the craft of building environments for people. Our goal is to bring a level of craft and art to everyday life.

RNT strives for project truths that recognizes the vision of the client, our own sources of inspiration and sensibility, and the special qualities of a place. We enjoy revealing these project narratives through the craft and language of material, structure, space and light.

My particular interest is the painterly quality of light and the development of spatial experience and atmosphere that resonates with the program and vision of the client.
