Lecture series by Anna Bronovitskaya. Twentieth-Century Architects, Part 3.

15 January – 29 April 2020

DESCRIPTION

The third block of Anna Bronovitskaya’s lecture cycle, which introduces eminent twentieth-century architects, aims to represent architecture as a heterogeneous phenomenon and inspect the contribution of particular personalities.

The history of architecture is much more interesting and complex than merely a linear process encompassing the establishment of modernism and its mutation into the postmodernist condition. A closer examination reveals a variety of different versions of the modernity project that cannot be embraced within a single narrative. The monographic approach demonstrates the diversity of ideas that nourished architectural creativity and unveils the circumstances that informed it. Just like the previous seasons, the new series features international architects, each of them notable for developing original and innovative architectural solutions and constructing buildings that have become all-time classics.
