EXPERIMENTAL WORKSHOPS IN MODERN ARCHITECTURE . MIES ES +

27 February - 29 May 2016

EXPERIMENTAL WORKSHOPS IN MODERN ARCHITECTURE . MIES ES +

Manifesto, Imagine, Experiment, Sense!

Architect Fermín Blanco will use the Sistema Lupo teaching method to offer a workshop series for children. The aim is to provide boys and girls with the keys needed for them to interpret modern architecture through the legacy of the most important figures in this field of our time.  

Architect David Antuña and artist Rebeca Mariño will introduce the participants to the fascinating world of modern architecture. Each workshop will be dedicated to the study of one of the most representative artists belonging to the different generations of architects from the avant-garde movements to the present, and will take into account the philosophy of each individual creator.  

Games will be an essential part of all the sessions. The Sistema Lupo, which includes both material and contents, will be used. This teaching method consists of a number of modular parts that allow for many different possible combinations, shapes, proportions, balancing games and action strategies. It is an experimental educational system that promotes individual reflection and creativity as well as team work through the dynamics of large-scale construction.

The methodology includes a theoretical part, in which we will approach the figure and ideas of each architect, followed by a series of construction challenges.

This first series of workshops, to be held the last weekend of every month, will be dedicated to the architecture manifesto of Le Corbusier, the idealism of Jorn Utzon, the experimental character of Frei Otto and the sensitive creation of Kazuyo Sejima Saana.
