Spanish architect, thinker awarded with a Silver Lyon at last year’s Venice Biennale Andrés Jaque will be giving a talk and responding to a Q&A with Canadian urban designer and writer Brendan Cormier at the Barbican at 7pm next Thursday the 9th of October.
What are the borders of architecture? How has the discipline evolved to face the non-stop challenges of the city? How does it communicate and connect with society? Acclaimed Spanish architect and theorist Andrés Jaque, winner of the Silver Lion at this year’s Venice Architecture Biennale, leads a panel discussion exploring how contemporary architecture engages with the public realm, and advances attempts to define, or redefine, those blurred boundaries of the profession today.
The event is part of Spain NOW! the 6th annual season of contemporary Spanish art and culture in London.
