Architecture + Urbanism recommends 'BEATRIZ COLOMINA: Manifesto Architecture - The Ghost of Mies

Professor Beatriz Colomina (Princeton University) will be lecturing on her recent publication MANIFESTO ARCHITECTURE: THE GHOST OF MIES

1.00pm Tuesday 9 December
Floor 4 Manchester School of Art (Benzie Building MMU)

"An essential part of the architect’s education is in representation. We are taught that our materials must speak, that we need to be able to convey our ideas clearly and concisely. While formats such as drawing models or texts are often posited as privileged sites for architectural discourse, the forum where this intervention takes place is rarely investigated with the same rigor. In the third installment of the Critical Spatial Practice book series, Beatriz Colomina narrates an alternative history of modern architecture that doesn’t focus on what was proposed, but instead where, how, and even at times why modern architecture was formulated as a project."
