to Jul 12 | ARCHITECTURE CONFERENCE | Archi Summit ’19 | Intendente | 35-80€
“Architecture is the learned game, correct and magnificent, of forms assembled in the light.”
ARCHI SUMMIT 2019 assembles in Lisbon next week for its fifth edition.
Three days, each with a unique theme; architects, brands, pros, enthusiasts, workshops, debates, discussions, and general network-building in the correct and magnificent worlds of Portuguese and international architecture.
July 10-12, 14h-21h.
July 10th – On drawing.
Architecture representation, besides being a technical device or an artistic object, is a form of thought and an expression of knowledge. Images convey intent, and architects, as producers of images, have represented their visions (and, therefore, themselves) in distinctive manners along time. From the apparently spontaneous sketch to hyper-realistic computer-generated images, from models to sections, all these might be understood as forms of drawing. In this evening, we’re bringing together makers of images and collectors of images and find out why they often do both.
15h00 Francesca Torzo x Joaquim Moreno
17h00 Álvaro Siza Vieira x Niall Hobhouse
19h30 Madelon Vriesendorp x Pedro Bandeira
July 11th – On building.
Building is an act of transformation. Of changing and inclosing otherwise open spaces; of turning visions into physical reality. Planing the way architecture is to be built is to orchestrate an immense amount of matter, energy, and money; heroic technical ability or precious ancestral craftsmanship. After an intense, sometimes violent moment, these building choices endure, convening a vast number of cultural values, of locality or appropriation, exuberance or restraint
15h00 Ivo Barão and Peter Hutter (Barão-Hutter) x Matilde Girão (Girão Lima Arquitectos)
17h00 Stephen Taylor x Jorge Carvalho (aNC Arquitectos)
19h30 Charlotte Von Moos (Sauter Von Moos) x Margarida Quintã
July 12th – On the Monumental.
Architecture has the power to influence society in a meaningful way. This power can surpass the scale of an intervention: A large endeavor may reshape a whole section of a city at once, but a modestly-sized built artifact might hold in itself an immense collective significance. Both are monumental in their effects, on transcending their material condition. In this panel we will navigate through this aspirational sense of architecture, to contribute, beyond what is commissioned, to an ongoing shared history.
15h00 Job Floris (Monadnock) x Paulo Martins Barata (Promontório)
17h00 Ricardo Bak Gordon x Rui Furtado (AFA Consult)
19h30 Umberto Napolitano (LAN) x Julia Albani.
