AAFx AARHUS 2017 CONFERENCE

Arkitektur har karakter. Arkitekturen er ikke bare progressiv og rational men bærer også en kulturel byrde, som er med til at give arkitekturen identitet, og som formidler kunstneriske ideer, politiske ideologier og kulturelle fortællinger. Arkitektur er både stedsånd, håndværk og sanselighed. Konferencen ‘Architecture as Character’ sætter fokus på, hvordan arkitekturens karakter og dens arkitekter giver form til en kulturel identitet. Mød over to dage en lang række arkitekter, kunstnere, beslutningstagere og kritikere der vil kaste lys over arkitekturen som værdiskaber og som en aspiration om en bedre verden.

Architecture has character. It is nearly always a set assignment meant to achieve a specific goal and solve a particular task. Architecture is subject to functions, programs, financial frameworks, and regulatory restrictions – as well as other external requirements and expectations. But architecture is also part of our common cultural horizons. Good architecture may overcome restrictive external requirements and satisfy more interests than those which were initially sought. The design may serve additional purposes and be relevant in a wider than expected context. Even as a ruin.       

As a part of the city’s year as host of the European Capital of Culture, the Aarhus Architecture Festival (AAFx) conference, Architecture as Character, is envisioned to debate and reflect on how architectural character forms our culture, identity and awareness.

Come and experience Søren Sleth (SLETH), Ellen Braae (University of Copenhagen), André Tavares (Lisbon Architecture Triennial), Fabrizio Barozzi & Alberto Veiga (EUs Mies van der Rohe Price winners), Andreas Ruby (Swiss Architecture Muesum), Jette Lehmann (Scenographer), Jan Boelen (Z33),  Stig L. Andersson (SLA), Tania Ruiz Gutiérrez (artist), Kjeld Vindum (KADK), Todd Saunders (Saunders Architects), Pippo Ciorra (MAXXI) and many others…

 

Note: The conference will be held in English.
