The fifth conference of the series “The Appetizer” of the 2011-12 course, organized by IE School of Architecture & Design, will be held next Monday 14 November.  Luis Álvarez Alfaro will give a lecture called “From Hercules to Schwarzenegger passing through La Alhambra”. The event will take place at 2pm, in Room 142 of the university´s 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.


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.
