Description

The Problem of Context in Contemporary Architecture.

I will argue that architectural context and qualitative place cannot be reduced to an image, and thus its proper identification in design is not a simple matter. This lecture will attempt to unpack this problem and identify appropriate strategies for architects to acknowledge context in their design work. Dr. Alberto Pérez-Gómez

You are invited to attend a special lecture by distinguished architect Dr Alberto Pérez-Gómez, 2017 Droga Architect in Residence.

Introduction by Richard Kirk, FRAIA, Incoming President Australian Institute of Architects

Q & Q Moderator: Brit Andresen, Professor Emeritus, University of Queensland

Dr Pérez-Gómez holds the position of Saidye Rosner Bronfman Professor of the History of Architecture, Founding Director of the post-professional MArch and PhD, History and Theory of Architecture Option, School of Architecture, McGill University, Montréal, Canada.
