Conférence de Miquel Lacasta au Congrès Architecture World de Cologne

Mercredi 24 octobre, Miquel Lacasta donnera une conférence intitulée « Plural Innovations in Architecture », dans le cadre du Congrès Architecture World qui se tiendra à Cologne.

Ce congrès se déroule dans le cadre de l’Orgatec, salon leader international pour l’équipement et le matériel de bureau et de propriété, le plus important d’Europe.

La conférence sera donnée en anglais:

“Architecture must go beyond the limits not only of disciplinary tradition, but also of the aspirational framework it circumscribes to, whether aesthetic or technical, to revolve around its centre of gravity – the city and its citizens – in a radical new way. In this sense, innovation is the fundamental vector to create an overflow and expansion in architecture. Having said that, it is important to know how to interpret and understand the idea of innovation from an open and pluralistic perspective, and not from the narrow mental window of closed disciplines.
For this reason, the proposal of Archikubik aims to lay the groundwork for a definition of the innovation vector as mentioned earlier; and in doing so reaffirming the first principle in the concept of innovation: plurality.
In order to truly innovate, it is necessary to open up to a reality that is both bastard and culturally ambiguous by definition, capturing the accelerated pace of modern times and moving the target of our ideas forward, without losing sight of the advances achieved.  That is why expanding architecture can and should be done from a basis of plurality.”
