At the Uni: critic|all conference in madrid

This Thursday morning, June 12th, I will head one of the "working tables" for critic|all, the I International Conference on Architectural Design and Criticism at the Madrid School of Architecture (ETSAM), thanks to an invitation by Federico Soriano, who heads the Department of Design at the school.

Researchers will present 4 papers on the theme of Utopias and Manifestos, followed by a moderated discussion. For more information, visit the critic|all website.

After the working table and a coffee break, Joan Ockman will deliver the keynote address, "Conjuring with Ghosts (Geists)", which should be interesting.

The papers to be presented:

10:00 “Transferencias desde los manifiestos a la teoría arquitectónica contemporánea”
            Beatriz Villanueva Cajide
            Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura de Madrid

10:25 “Yona Friedman: utopías realizadas desde la Ville Spatiale”
            Ramón Durántez Fernández

10:50 “Revisiting the encounters of the social concern with the utopian aspirations:
           Is pragmatist imagination or utopian realism the way to follow?”

11:15 “Utopías de reconstrucción”
