“The Debt of Architecture”. 

IE University.

Campus de Santa Cruz de la Real

13:00/14:30 h.

(Sala Capitular)  

 

La Sala Capitular acogerá el próximo viernes 13 de febrero, a las 13,00 horas, la última conferencia del ciclo de arquitectura titulado “FOUNDATIONS”, correspondiente al curso 2014-2015. En esta ocasión, visita IE University la arquitecta Louisa Hutton, del estudio berlinés de arquitectura Sauerbruch Hutton, que ofrecerá una charla que lleva por título “The Debt of Architecture”. 

Sauerbruch Hutton Architects es un estudio de arquitectura con sedes en Berlín y Londres fundado por Matthias Sauerbruch y Louisa Hutton en 1989. Sus trabajos destacan ante todo por su síntesis de color durante el proceso de diseño, así como por el empleo de formas curvilíneas. Hacen uso de materiales y técnicas innovadoras, y buscan aplicar criterios de sostenibilidad en todos los casos.

Louisa Hutton will consider a series of projects located in various European cities, focusing on the genesis of their morphology. Whether conceived under the paradigm of the city as landscape or that of the continuity of the urban fabric, in all cases it is architecture’s debt to the public realm that informs the primary response of each building.

Various strategies have been developed to address wastelands of the post-industrial city as well as those sites located within heterogeneous parts of the city where fabric, fragmented firstly by WWII bombing, has been further disrupted by a sequence of interventions carried out under competing mind-sets. While solutions for the former may enjoy the freedom to exploit the scale of obsolete infrastructure in their creation of urban space, those for the latter generally need to carefully attend to the task of urban repair in order to achieve some sort of retrospective integration of the disparate fragments. The talk will also address the theme of dynamic perception and its effect on both the surfaces as well as the forms of Sauerbruch Hutton’s architecture.

Louisa Hutton (Norwich, 1957) is an architect, partner of Sauerbruch Hutton and visiting professor at Harvard Graduate School of Design. Hutton studied at Bristol University and the Architectural Association in London and worked for Alison and Peter Smithson. Together with Matthias Sauerbruch she founded Sauerbruch Hutton in London in 1989 and relocated to Berlin in 1991. The enjoyment of the sensuality of space and material, as well as the mastery of up-to-date technology and the intelligent use of existing resources of every kind are the focus of their work. They have gained international renown for their early and comprehensive engagement with sustainability in architecture and urbanism. Further to her work as a practicing architect, Hutton gives lectures, participates in juries and attends symposia worldwide. In 2014, she has been elected as Royal Academician by the Royal Academy of Arts.

IE School of Architecture & Design have sponsored the “Class of 2011” award at the Architect of the Year Awards organized, last Tuesday November 15th  by Building Design at the Brewery in London.

For the first time this year, the six chosen graduates of the Class of 2011 were invited to compete for a fully funded year-long scholarship to the IE School of Architecture & Design in Madrid, to study on a new master’s business programme geared towards starting and managing an architectural firm.

Juan Lago-Novás Domingo, Director of the School, selected Cara Shields of the University of Strathclyde, who developed a project in collaboration with fellow student Marianne Keating for the phased development of a flood-prone village in rural north-west Bangladesh.

The scheme incorporated a disaster-relief building and training centre, arranged around a series of social spaces, entirely constructed from indigenous materials. The pair have since been out to work with the local villagers to design a community centre — incorporating a school, clinic, library and a space where the community can gather, discuss and play — and are currently looking for funding to realise the project. www.stabilisingthedelta.co.uk

IE School of Architecture, patrocinador del Architect of the Year Awards, organizado por la revista Building Design 

El pasado martes 15 de noviembre tuvo lugar en Londres la entrega de los Architect of the Year Awards, organizado por la revista BD. IE School of Architecture & Design, patrocinó el premio a la clase del 2011, para el mejor proyecto universitario, que fue entregado a Clara Shields de University of Strathclyde, por Juan Lago-Novás, director del Master in Architectural Management & Design. 

El premio consiste en una beca para la próxima edición del MAMD en febrero 2012, el programa de máster de IE University orientado a la creación y la gestión de una empresa de arquitectura. 

Juan Lago-Novás Domingo seleccionó como mejor proyecto universitario al presentado por Clara Shields la Universidad de Strathclyde, que desarrolló un trabajo junto con su compañero de estudios Marianne Keating para el desarrollo gradual de un puebloen riesgo de inundaciones en la zona rural del noroeste de Bangladesh. El plan incorpora un edificio para el alivio de desastres y un centro de formación, organizados en torno a una serie de espacios sociales, enteramente construido con materiales autóctonos.  

Clara Shields y Marianne Keating  han estado trabajando desde entonces con la población local para diseñar un centro comunitario, integrado por una escuela, una clínica, una biblioteca y un espacio donde la comunidad pueda reunirse, discutir y jugar. Actualmente, ambos están buscando financiación para realizar el proyecto www.stabilisingthedelta.co.uk

Stefano Casciani, Domus, Deputy Director   

Stefano Casciani, one of the most influential designers in the world and Deputy Director of Domus design journal, is giving a lecture at IE University. This lecture is the closure of the “INOUT: affecting architecture, expanding possibilities” series that IE University Professor Laura Martínez de Guereñu coordinated.

Stefano Casciani (born 1955 Rome) is a designer, critic, architect, curator, and consultant. He is especially known for his work with the prestigious architecture and design journal, Domus, where he has served as the deputy director since 2007. However, he began his affiliation with this Milan-based publication in 1979, when Alessandro Mendini invited him as a freelance editor. At age 25 he was the Art Director for Zanotta.  He participated in the experimental activities of the Studio Alchimia and  has worked as a communication consultant, art director, and designer for many design companies, among which are Alessi, Bisazza, Bticino, Cassina, Ivalo Lighting, Biennale di Venezia, Triennale di Milano, and City of Rome. He is internationally recognized today as an influential and singular figure in the design world due to his multifaceted career. Visiting Professor in design and architecture schools and universities in Italy and abroad, Casciani has written hundreds of articles and more than twenty books, mainly focusing on the relationships between architecture, design, and art. Casciani has served on numerous juries and received noteworthy awards such as the Compasso d’Oro 2001 for the RAI television program ”Lessons of Design”.

The INOUT lecture series brought to IE University seven international experts that provided their distinct vision on the diversification that is currently taking place in the world of architecture, a discipline in which not only the architect participates but also a group of professionals whose work is essential for the success of any project.

Es especialmente conocido por su trabajo en la prestigiosa revista de arquitectura y diseño, Domus, donde ha sido director ejecutivo desde 2007.

Con tan sólo 25 años, Casciani fue director artístico de Zanotta, participó en las actividades experimentales del Studio Alchimia y comenzó a trabajar como consultor de comunicación, director artístico y diseñador para numerosas empresas de diseño, entre las cuales destacan Alessi, Bisazza, Bticino, Cassina, Ivalo Lighting, Biennale di Venezia, Triennale di Milano y City of Rome. Debido a su polifacética carrera, Casciani es hoy una figura influyente y singular en el mundo internacional del diseño. Ha sido profesor invitado de arquitectura y diseño en numerosas escuelas italianas y extranjeras y ha escrito cientos de artículos y más de veinte libros, principalmente enfocados en la relación entre la arquitectura, el diseño y el arte. Casciani ha intervenido en numerosos jurados y ha recibido destacados premios como el Compasso d’Oro 2001 por el programa de televisión “Lecciones de diseño” emitido por la RAI. 

En el ciclo de conferencias INOUT han participado un total de siete expertos de perfil internacional que han aportado su particular visión de la diversificación que actualmente experimenta la arquitectura, una disciplina en la que no solo interviene el arquitecto sino que además participa un grupo de profesionales cuyo trabajo se antoja fundamental para el éxito de cualquier proyecto.
