Sou-Sujimoto_póster2As part of the launch of its new Master in Architectural Design, IE School of Architecture has invited the Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto to give the first lecture “Evolving IDEAS: Primitive Future” conference cycle organized jointly by the school and the Círculo de Bellas Arts in Madrid.

The conference will take place on Monday 8th of April at 19:30 in la Sala de Columnas del Círculo de Bellas Artes de Madrid, calle Alcalá, 42. The price for a ticket is 4 Euros and they can be purchased at the box office on the same day of the event. 

Fujimoto adopts a way of architecture that goes back to the basics, back to the moment of intuition involved in the process of the design, free of any ties and open to diverse possibilities. 

About Sou Fujimoto:
Sou Fujimoto graduated in 1994 from the Department of Architecture, Faculty of Engineering at the University of Tokyo. In 2000 he created his own office, Sou Fujimoto Architects. He has taught as an associate professor at the University of Sciences in Tokyo and Showa Women’s University in the University of Tokyo, among others.

In 2005, and for three consecutive years, Fujimoto received the price for Architectural Review, a prestigious international award for young architects. In 2008 he was awarded by the Japan Institute of Architecture and the World Architecture Festival in the category of private homes. In addition, in 2009 he received an award for Design by Magazine WallPaper. His book “Primitive Future”, published in 2008, became the best-selling work of architecture in that year.

His architectural designs are in search of new forms and existing spaces between nature and artificiality which will undoubtedly continue to evolve in the future. 

Fujimoto formed part, along with the recent price for Pritzker Architecture Toyo Ito, of the team who won the Golden Lion at the past Bienal of Venecia with “Architecture, possible here? Home-for-All “, the Japanese Pavilion at the 2012 edition.

This 2013, has been commissioned by the Serpentine Gallery in London to design the temporary pavilion that this institution used for public events in London’s Hyde Park. Each year this gallery of international prestige puts its pavilion (which will open between June and October) in hands of a renowned international architect who has not previously built in the UK.
