The series of talks revolves around the theme of the construction of architectural imagination as both a collective and an individual process. We define imagination as the capacity to organise, structure and translate into other forms our own experience of the world. Such experience may be direct, or it can be mediated by the encounter of a subject with images and concepts. The talks will thus question the possibility of the construction of a common architectural imagination, fueled through collections and research centres, exhibitions, meetings and the circulation of images through different media. This process could identify a potential collective moment in the contemporary condition which is often considered as mostly fragmented and individualized. The speakers will address the subject from complementary points of view: historical, theoretical, in the construction of an architectural practice, and in the development of a collection and a research centre.
In the world of the architectural project, is it possible to know the inner space of an architect, what he or she has “in his or her head”, beyond the ideas? How? When we see the images that fascinate him or her, images we see frequently, sometimes, not every times, in the commentaries or explanations for a project, what is their significations? They are in the inner space of the project itself. They illustrate its architectural problematic.
Jacques Lucan (FR)
A building thought forms the way of living, developed through the ways things are made as a guideline to come to architecture. Resulting in real architecture to live.
