EXPERIMENTAL WORKSHOPS IN MODERN ARCHITECTURE.MIES IS +

28 October 2017 - 1 July 2018

EXPERIMENTAL WORKSHOPS IN MODERN ARCHITECTURE.MIES IS +

HOURS: from 11 to 13 h

For yet another year, the CGAC is offering a series of workshops on contemporary architecture for children. The workshops are directed by the architect Fermín Blanco and taught by the Lupo System team. The aim is to provide children with the necessary tools to interpret present-day architecture through the latest theories, projects, and works by the most relevant architects.

The Lupo System didactics will be implemented throughout the sessions, both for the contents as for the materials used. Lupo consists of a series of modular pieces that offer multiple combination possibilities, shapes, proportions, balancing games and action strategies. It is an experimental didactics that fosters reflection and individual creativity as well as team work through games and large scale construction dynamics. The methodology includes a theoretical part, where the philosophy and work of each architect is set forth and, subsequently, a series of constructional challenges will be addressed.

The architecture workshops will be held on the last weekend of every month and throughout this edition will focus on Wright's Communitarianism, Van Allen's enthusiasm for childhood, Niemeyer's urban and social vision, Buscher's experimentation at the Bauhaus, the intergenerational continuity of the Porto School, Gray's free spirit, Tyng's geometric obsessions, or Aalto and Marsio's organic inspiration. We will embark on a journey through the thoughts of men and women who represent our modern tradition and who have contributed to lay the foundations of present-day architecture.
