IE University was, for a day, a big Architecture Studio

Written on February 21, 2014 by Roberto Arribas in Architecture, Exhibitions

20140221_111101The central cloisters of Segovia’s IE University Campus have become today a big architecture studio. The students have shown today the projects they have been doing all along the year to share them with the rest of the campus students, and submit them to the evaluation of the professors. It was, mostly, an open architecture day, as any visitant to the campus has been able to look to the progress of the students and go to an open lecture.

As a cherry on top of the day, IE University welcomed today a lecture by Ireland based American innovative architect, Merritz Bucholz, under the name of “Process Interaction. The guidance of Architectural Form”. This lecture takes part in the “Encounters” cycle, all over the year. It analyzes all the ways in which an architect can consider a Project and all the diferent alternatives he has to unchain the creative process.

Until this moment, the cycle had the lectures of journalist and cineaste Oskar Alegría; professor and ETH Zurich researcher Toni Kotnik, and Elia Zenghelis, big name of architecture in Europe.

Zenghelis lecture features in the framework of “Encounters”, organized by the School of Architecture of the private university.

Zenghelis, 1937 – Athens, Greece, is considered as one of the most influent masters in the transformation of Architecture teaching in the last half-century. In his career he has been visiting professor in the leading schools of architecture, in Europe, Asia and America. This Greek architect is, without doubt, one of the most prestigious contemporary architects.

Visiting Professor in the Graduate School of Architecture of Yale University, Zenghelis was co-founder with Rem Koolhaas, Zoe Zenghelis and Madelon Vriesendorp of the Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA).

In this lecture at IE University, – named A Return: Visualizing the Project within a Broad Framework – Zenghelis will question the relation between politics and architecture, and will explore how an initial project can be the beginning for new proposals.

The “Encounters” cycle, that takes part all over the academic year, analyzes the multiple ways in which an architect contemplates a project and the different alternatives he has to trigger the creative process. Before, the cycle has welcomed the lectures of the journalist and film-maker Oskar Alegría, and of professor and researcher of Zurich ETH Toni Kotnik. After Zenghelis’ lecture, the next guest will be Merritt Bucholz, the innovative American architect, on February 28th.

Digital Poiesis: architecture between physical necessity and freedom of design

Contemporary utilization of the digital in architectural design has resulted in a shift towards the performative: an understanding of architecture reduced to the questions of quantification. The numerical, however, is not the essence of the digital. Based on Heidegger’s conception of the mathematical the lecture argues for a poetic dimension of the formal as the truly digital.

“The house of Emak Bakia”’s premiere was in the Zabaltegi section on International Cinema Festival in San Sebastian in 2012. Recently, Variety magazine has included Oskar Alegría amongst the most promising ten Spanish cineasts in their last special issue, dedicated to Cannes.

Formed as a journalist, Oskar Alegría (Pamplona 1973) started to work as a reporter in Madrid, on the news of Canal Plus and CNN+. He worked in cultural programs and was a coordinator on the sections of literature in Telemadrid and Euskal Telebista channels. Since more than a decade ago, his videos on trips are published in the travel supplement of El País, El Viajero; and he is the author of an artistic photography project called “Visible Cities”, supported by writer Enrique Vila-Matas, who emphasize his “contemporary Marco Polo way of looking at the world”.
