He will be in residence at UC Berkeley in March, where he will work with art students to build instruments using 3D printers and other technologies. This collaboration will result in a series of concerts to be held in early November. As part of his residency, Atoui presents a lecture on March 9 at the David Brower Center exploring his recent interests creating instrumentation for the hearing impaired.

Architecture of Life
January 31, 2016 - May 29, 2016
The inaugural exhibition in the UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive’s landmark new building, Architecture of Life explores the ways that architecture—as concept, metaphor, and practice—illuminates various aspects of life experience. International in scope and spanning two thousand years, the exhibition includes works of art in a wide range of media, as well as scientific illustrations and architectural drawings and models. Radically interdisciplinary, Architecture of Life presents visually exquisite, rarely seen works in ways that suggest new connections and meanings.
