“The Enduring Objects of Architecture: 10 Projects and a Plan” with Ludovico Centis, The Empire, Venice
Tuesday, October 4, 2016 -
1:00pm to 2:00pm
Room 103, 230 College
Buildings, cities and territories on one side, and books on the other, define the enduring objects of architectural practice. The intellectual and professional life of architects and urbanists unfolds between these two poles, their thoughts and actions set down on the physical world and the printed matter. The tension and exchange that this condition generates will be investigated through the narration of ten accomplished projects and one ambitious plan that reflect on the reciprocal influences between these two spheres.
