The sixth conference of the series “The Appetizer” of the 2011-12 course will be held on Monday, November 21st . The event is organized by IE School of Architecture. Jose Vela Castillo will present the conference “Through the look-in-glass”, which offers a brief tour of some of the works of the Finnish architect Alvar Aalto and the way they respond to light, and especially to overhead light. The event will take place at 2 pm in classroom 142 of the Segovia Campus.

“The Appetizer” are series that run for a second year and aim to bring students closer to the key forces that shape contemporary architecture. Recognized professionals and academics in the discipline will address specific issues that are near or tangent to the field of architecture. They will be using small presentations that are less formal and rigid than a normal conference. 

A total of nine lectures, thirty minutes each are scheduled until next January 2012. The panel of participating experts include Edgar González, Fermín González Blanco, Paredes-Pino, Julia McAnallen, Luis Alfaro Álvarez, José Vela Castillo, Maki Kawaguchi, Manuel PérezRomero, Isabel Collado and Ignacio Peydro.

The lecture series is organized by the Associate Dean of External Relations at IE School of Architecture and executive director of the Pritzker Awards, Martha Thorne, and IE School of Architecture & Design academics, Julian Garcia and Anna Mestre
