Thinking and design practice



Jan De Vylder, Inge Vinck 
About this. And that. And also. And so on.


Thursday, 23 February  2023 7:30 p.m.
Teatro dell'architettura Mendrisio



Seeing the co-presence of systems of thought as enabling new ways of understanding disciplinary fields, the Mendrisio Academy of Architecture has always based its educational offering on the inclusion of different modes of knowledge and a fruitful openness to various possible forms of understanding. Practising crosscutting approaches involving disciplinary critical discourse and theoretical thought, their histories and design practice then becomes fundamental whenever we prepare to rethink the role and potential of architectural design in the contemporary world.

This new cycle of public lectures therefore seeks to renew interest in an active dialogue between different forms of discourse – conceptual-reflective and pragmatic-operational – with a series of public encounters with important scholars, researchers and designers, who in their different roles gravitate around the academic community of Mendrisio


Free entrance subject to availability.
