Architecture speaks! The international conference series explores spaces through the prism of user experience and patina



In 2021-2022, the conference series explores spaces through the prism of the user experience and the patina of life brought to spaces by users.

“During the pandemic, our way of life slowed down and we stopped to think about the impact that spaces have on their users and the patina of life brought to spaces by users. The importance of craftsmanship has become preponderant. We aspire to a precise quality of work and to tangible materials ”, says Jenni Reuter, curator of the lecture series.

Architecture speaks! 2021-2022 conference series

Wednesday 10 November 2021 from 1:15 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. (UTC + 2 / Finnish time)
Bêka & Lemoine

Videographers, filmmakers, producers and publishers, Ila Beka and Louise Lemoine have been working together for 15 years, mainly focusing their research on the experimentation of new narrative and cinematographic forms in relation to contemporary architecture and the urban environment. By focusing their interest primarily on how the built environment shapes and influences our daily life, they have developed a very unique and personal approach that can be defined, with reference to the French writer Georges perec, like an “anthropology of the ordinary”. http://www.bekalemoine.com

“In their films, Ila Bêka and Louise Lemoine show architecture from the user’s point of view. This aspect is most often absent from architectural publications, although architecture only comes to life when in use., says Jenni Reuter.

The seminar is free. Pre-registration is required.

The professional life of these architects has been united from the start: they were both students at the Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile, graduating at the same time in 2001 and immediately started working together independently. They have developed projects of different scales and typologies, highlighting a prototype of social housing in Santiago, the Sargento Aldea school in the municipality of Pintana, Apus Rupanco, Dos Robles, Dos Hermanos, Los Coihues, Adriana, Apus Kankay , Amarilla, Peumayen, DOK and Barn house among others, as well as the Inacap university campuses in Los Angeles, Chillán, Talca, Curicó and San Pedro. In 2013, they won the national competition for the design of the new building of the National Historical Museum, located in the Plaza de Armas, in Santiago de Chile. https://aguilopedraza.cl/

“The work of Diego Aguilo and Rodrigo Pedraza fascinates by its apparent ease, its lightness and the natural use of materials. The buildings look like moving objects in the landscape, looking at the world and its inhabitants with open, gentle eyes ”, says Jenni Reuter.

The seminar is free. Pre-registration is required.

Bijoy Jain / Bombay Studio

Bijoy jain was born in 1965 in Mumbai and received his Masters in Architecture from Washington University in St. Louis, USA. He worked in Los Angeles and London before returning to India in 1995, when he founded Studio Mumbai. His work explores the boundaries between art, architecture and matter. His studio operates as an interdisciplinary group of architects, engineers, builders, craftspeople, technicians and artists across continents. As a collective, they are involved in the research and development of projects, using process and time as an integral part of their expression. Water, air and light form the basis of all materiality in the synthesis of the work.

“Bijoy Jain’s small-scale architecture emphasizes the presence and patina of materials. Careful craftsmanship and an atmosphere of ingenuity are the starting points of Studio Mumbai’s architecture ”, says Jenni Reuter.

The seminar is free. Pre-registration is required.
