Today, January 16, the eighth session of the 2011-2012 “The Appetizer” talk cycle took place, organized by IE School of Architecture at the Segovia campus. 

Manuel Pérez Romero gave a talk on “Gérmenes y arquitectura. O ¿de qué hablo cuando hablo del tiempo?” (Germs and architecture. Or, what am I talking about when I talk about the weather?). 

The event was organized by IE School of Architecture. “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 use small presentations that are less formal and rigid than a normal conference.

Summary:

Located adjacent to the World Trade Centre site and an icon of US economic power, after 9/11, the New York Stock Exchange was identified as a likely target for terrorism. Immediate steps were taken to secure the area. This was initially accomplished through the rapid installation of armed security personnel, along with a vast array of jersey barriers, barricades, checkpoints and parked trucks.

The Financial District Security and Streetscape project looked at security devices as an amenity rather than a burden. By utilizing security programming to build public amenities that enhance the public space around one of New York’s most iconic building, this project balances the issues and contradictions of enabling vibrant streetscape while installing cutting-edge security in the densest urban condition of New York.

Conference: 

In the last few decades, our society is living a real physical fitness craze phenomenon that has had its architectural translation in the massive construction of buildings for such uses, including the emergence of new typologies and the recovery of others that were nearly obsolete. However, body care and its architectural translation are as old as humanity itself and we can say that the more developed is (or has been) the psyche of a society or an era, the greater has been its interest in fitness and body care. What now seem to us new customs of our age are in fact just jumps in time that take us from ancient Greece to California, from Hercules to Schwarzenegger.

The fourth conference of the series “The Appetizer” of the 2011-12 course, organized by IE School of Architecture & Design, will be held next Monday 17 October .  Julia McAnallen, professor at Berkeley University, will give a lecture called “The linguistic landscape of urban spaces”. The event will take place at 2pm, in Room 142 of the university´s Segovia Campus. 

In cities, speakers of different dialects and languages come into contact with one another frequently, yet boundaries-both physical and cultural-are maintained (and even created). Thus, urban settings support distinctive contexts of communication and linguistic practices, and at the same time linguistic factors can shape urban spaces (think of barrios and ghettos unified by a common language). The talk will describe some of the parameters linguists have used to understand these phenomena, drawing on influential studies of dialects among different regional, socioeconomic, and cultural groups, and of the importance of social networks on speech communities.

“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.

Julia McAnallen, profesora de la Universidad de Berkeley, impartirá una conferencia dentro del ciclo “El Aperitivo” 

El próximo lunes 17 de Octubre se celebrará la cuarta conferencia del ciclo “El Aperitivo” de este curso 2011-12, organizada por IE School of Architecture. Julia McAnallen, profesora en la Universidad de Berkeley, invitada por IE School of Arts and Humanities, ofrecerá la conferencia “The linguistic landscape of urban spaces”, en la que reflexionará sobre el fenómeno lingüístico vinculado al urbanismo y la influencia del contexto lingüístico en la forma de los espacios urbanos. El acto tendrá lugar a las 14,00 h, en la Sala Capitular del Campus de Segovia. 

Contenido:

En las ciudades, los hablantes de distintas lenguas y dialectos entran a menudo en contacto unos con otros; sin embargo las fronteras tanto físicas como culturales se mantienen (e incluso se crean). Así, las zonas urbanas son soporte de distintos contextos de comunicación y prácticas lingüísticas, a la vez que los factores lingüísticos pueden dar forma a los espacios urbanos (como barrios y guetos unificados por un lenguaje común). En la charla se describen algunos de los parámetros que los lingüistas han utilizado para entender estos fenómenos, recurriendo a influyentes estudios de dialectos entre distintos grupos regionales, socioeconómicos y culturales; también se habla de la importancia de las redes sociales en las comunidades de habla. 

El ciclo “El Aperitivo”, que alcanza este curso su segunda edición,  pretende acercar a los estudiantes las claves que están configurando la arquitectura contemporánea. Reconocidos profesionales en ejercicio y estudiosos de la disciplina abordan temas puntuales, cercanos o tangentes al ámbito de la arquitectura a través de pequeñas presentaciones menos formales y rígidas que una conferencia normal.  

En total se han programado hasta el próximo enero de 2012 un total de nueve conferencias, de treinta minutos cada una. Entre los expertos que participan figuran Edgar González, Fermín González Blanco, Paredes-Pino, Julia McAnallen, Luis Álvarez Alfaro, José Vela Castillo, Maki Kawaguchi, Manuel Pérez Romero, Isabel Collado e Ignacio Peydro. 

El ciclo de conferencias está organizado por la Vicedecana de Relaciones Externas de IE School of Architecture y directora ejecutiva de los premios Pritzker, Martha Thorne, y por los profesores de IE School of Architecture & Design, Julián García y Anna Mestre.
