Sean Lally received his Bachelors degree in Landscape Architecture from UMASS Amherst, his Masters in Architecture from UCLA and is a tenured associate professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago in the School of Architecture. Lally is the author of the ‘The Air from Other Planets: A Brief History of Architecture to Come’ (Lars Muller), editor of ‘Energies, New Material Boundaries’ (Wiley Press) & co-editor of ‘Softspace, From a Representation of From to a Simulation of Space’, (Routledge). Lally has lectured worldwide and has been a visiting professor at the University of Virginia and Rice University. Lally is the recipient of the Young Architects Award from the Architectural League of New York and the Prince Charitable Trusts Rome Prize from the American Academy in Rome in Landscape Architecture. Lally is the host of the podcast program, Night White Skies.
Lally’s work is a synthesis of two intense pressures on society today: humanity’s manipulation of the environment and the bio-engineering of the human body. Lally’s design works are experiments that report on potential futures ahead and embrace the belief that for humanity to live sustainably and responsibly, Earth’s environments, as well as the human body, will just have to artificially evolve together. His work speculates on the shapes and aesthetics of space including the social and political dynamics that will emerge when both the design of the environment and the human body are recognized as necessarily elastic for humanity to move forward.
