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.

“Iran and Europe: Friend or Foe?”

Written on February 6, 2014 by Roberto Arribas in General, Highlights

Rouzbeh_Parsi_101209The Iran Dialogues – 6

“Iran and Europe: Friend or Foe?”

Dr. Rouzbeh Parsi

Lund University, Sweden 

Madrid, Thursday 13 February 2014

17:00-18:30 at IE, C/ Maria de Molina 4, E108

You are cordially invited to attend the talk Iran and Europe: Friend or Foe?”, the sixth in the series of discussions being held in Spain by CITPax as part of its Iran Dialogues Series and the Iran Regional Perspectives project. This session will be co-hosted by the IE School of International Relations and is sponsored by LSE Enterprise (Spain).

The role of the EU High Representative Catherine Ashton appears to have been pivotal in the negotiations between Iran and the G5+1 in reaching an interim agreement on the nuclear issue.

Yet the actual role of the EU overall in relation to Iran is far from clear. Europe still straddles between a firmer American position towards Iran and the desire and interest in a permanent diplomatic solution. To what extent might the ever-present possibility of failure of the nuclear negotiations process cause a disconnect between the US and Europe, should it be caused by the US reneging on the provisional agreement?

What is Europe´s role in the future and what is Europe´s strategic interest in this issue? Can it transcend its apparent risk-aversion and create an improved relationship with Iran, and what might be the parameters of a constructive future relationship between the two? How might that differ from the EU’s relationships with other countries in the region? How might Iran’s “red lines” influence such a relationship? Does southern Europe (particularly Spain, Italy and even Greece) offer the opportunity for a new European role vis a vis Iran?

Dr. Rouzbeh Parsi was formerly a Senior Analyst at the EU Institute for Security Studies (2009-2013) specialising in the domestic political developments of Iran and their foreign policy implications, governance and political culture in Iran and Iraq, and regional relations. He is a specialist in Iran, Iraq and the Persian Gulf; and has worked on the development and change of political concepts such as modernisation, religion, nationalism and secularisation. Dr. Parsi is currently Senior Lecturer in the Department of Human Rights at Lund University, Sweden, and is the Director of the European Iran Research Group.

Please kindly confirm attendance to International.Relations@ie.edu

zenghelisElia Zenghelis, one of the big names in European architecture and one of its greatest professors with more than fifty years of experience, will offer next Friday January, 24th at 13h00, a lecture in IE University in Segovia. 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 2000, he received the Annie Spink Award for Education Excellence from the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA). And his work is shown in the New York Museum of Modern Art collection.

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.

Elia Zenghelis, uno de los grandes maestros de la arquitectura, ofrece una conferencia en IE University 

Elia Zenghelis, uno de los grandes arquitectos europeos y uno de los docentes más prestigiosos de arquitectura con una trayectoria de cincuenta años, ofrecerá el próximo viernes 24 de enero, a las 13,00 horas,  una conferencia en el campus de IE University en Segovia. La ponencia de Zenghelis se enmarca dentro del ciclo “Encounters”, que organiza la Escuela de Arquitectura de la universidad privada.

Durante su trayectoria profesional ha sido profesor invitado en las más prestigiosas escuelas de arquitectura europeas, americanas, asiáticas y latinoamericanas. Este arquitecto griego es, sin duda, uno de los más claros referentes de los arquitectos contemporáneos más prestigiosos. 

Profesor invitado en el Graduate School of Architecture de la Universidad de Yale,  Zenghelis fue co-fundador con Rem Koolhaas, Zoe Zenghelis y Madelon Vriesendorp del Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA).

alegriawebEl próximo martes 29 de octubre comienza en IE University, a las 13,00 horas, el ciclo de conferencias ENCOUNTERS, organizado por la Escuela de Arquitectura, con la proyección de película “Emak Bakia!” y una posterior charla por parte de Oskar Alegría, autor del documental sobre la búsqueda de la casa de Man Ray, “Emak Bakia”.

La casa Emak Bakia.- Una película vanguardista de Man Ray llamada Emak Bakia, en vasco “Déjame en paz”, desata la historia de una búsqueda. La casa donde se rodó en 1926 cerca de Biarritz tuvo ese peculiar nombre y Oskar Alegria decide emprender un camino a pie hacia su localización. De aquella mansión, Man Ray solo dio a conocer tres planos: la imagen de su puerta principal, dos columnas de una ventana y un trozo de costa cercana. La búsqueda a través de esas imágenes antiguas no será fácil. El nombre no figura en los archivos y nadie recuerda hoy la casa. Por eso se pedirá ayuda y colaboración a otros informantes como el azar y el viento.

Oskar Alegria. Emak Bakia!

The search for the house where Man Ray inspired his avant-garde cinema. 

Do clowns really die? Do princesses answer letters? Do we picture death as a white horse? Where do old words go when they disappear? These are some of the questions asked in Emak Bakia Baita (The Emak Bakia House), a documentary on the search for the house on the Basque coast where Man Ray shot his famous film Emak Bakia (Leave Me Alone) back in 1926. Eighty years after the shooting, Oskar Alegria sets out to find the house on the basis of four clues: the house’s weird name, a photogram of a window, a photogram of a door and an image of the sea. 

Oskar Alegria (Pamplona, 1973). Trained as a journalist, he began working as a reporter in Madrid on news programs for Canal+ and CNN+. He has been an editor of cultural programs and has directed the series “Masters of Basque Cooking” for ETB-telebista. Since 2002, he writes travel reports for the supplement to El País, El Viajero, and is the author of a photographic artistic project called “The Visible Cities,” endorsed by the author Enrique Vila-Matas and the artist Esther Ferrer. He is a professor of documentary scripts in the Masters of Audiovisual Scripts from the University of Navarra and since 2013, he has been appointed as new Artistic Director for Pamplona´s Punto de Vista International Film Festival.

ABOUT ENCOUNTERS

Lecture series 2013-2014. IE University, Campus Santa Cruz la Real

13.00-14.30

A project, by definition, is always an encounter. The posing of a question is a trigger for the creative process; in order to find a response, there must first be an encounter.

Encounters sometimes take place with other preexisting projects. This is the case in the work of Oskar Alegria, who will discuss a documentary that deals with an experimental film by Man Ray from the 1920’s, reproduced now to register the process of his own search. Or that of the work of Elia Zenghelis, who will question the relationship of politics and architecture and will explore how reconsidering the earlier projects can be a mode of generating new and proposals.

Encounters also happen with the different agents involved in design operations. This is how Toni Kotnik understands the integration of scientific knowledge into the creative process, using digital tools to help explore a poetics of architectural form. Merritt Bucholz, meanwhile, explores the desire of the architect to introduce specific analyses and inputs –especially those related to energy efficiency–   during design development, in order to guide the generation of durable architectural forms.

Over the course of this academic year, four guests with quite diverse backgrounds and experiences will explain different ways to establish the starting point of a project, different means to trigger the design process, and different results of creative encounters. Each of them will show that we are not alone in the shaping of the built environment, that there is a common ground formed by other designers and other projects, to which we must necessarily add. It is the sense of belonging to that bigger fabric that makes the practice of design so intriguing, and it is this concept which we will have the chance to discuss during the current lecture series.
