Giovedì 27 ottobre 2016, dalle ore 21.15, si terrà presso la nostra sede una serata di architettura dedicata alle opere dell'architetto Sebastián Irarrázaval.
L'architetto cileno ne parlerà con l'architetto Ombra Bruno.
La serata si terrà in lingua inglese.
The lecture will focus on translation as a design tool and will examine how translation -understood as transportation - can inseminate the project. In order to illustrate this argument, recent works done at the studio will be examined.
