Docomomo International is pleased to share that tomorrow, 7th October 2021 will take place at 17H30 (GMT+1) online the Monade x Columbia GSAPP talk, a conversation around the book Imagining the Evident by Álvaro Siza.
Monade and Columbia Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation will celebrate the first English edition of “Imagining the Evident” with a conversation with:
– Álvaro Siza,
– Francesco Dal Co,
– Kenneth Frampton,
– Peter Testa,
– Daniela Sá,
– and moderated by Barry Bergdoll
Imagining the Evident gathers texts by the architect Álvaro Siza on his own work and process. Describing some of his projects, references and struggles, this book offers a significant contribution to the understanding of Álvaro Siza’s unique and highly influential approach to architecture, design and urbanism. The text is accompanied by an extensive set of drawings from his notebooks, an obstinate presence in Siza’s particular way of working, some of which never published before. A personal and fundamental testimony of one of the most celebrated living architects, covering the full range of design – from architecture to city planning, furniture and objects – in a must-read book for all interested in Art and Architecture.
This event is so a personal and fundamental testimony of one of the most celebrated living architects in a dialogue hosted by Columbia University GSAPP.
