Art & Architecture - Public Lecture Series Summer Semester 2008

Mutsuro Sasaki: Morphogenesis of Flux Structure
Tuesday 6 May, 19 h, Deutsches Architekturmuseum, Schaumainkai 43

followed by
Plenum with Mutsuro Sasaki, Sanford Kwinter, Peter Schmal, Achim Menges, Harald Kloft and Johan Bettum.

Alle Veranstaltungen der Architekturklasse finden in englischer Sprache statt.

Of recently, Mutsuro Sasaki has emerged one of the leading engineers in the world, being a protagonist for a new type of structural design. Projects that he has completed include Toyo Ito's Sendai Mediatheque, the Greenhouse Facility in Gringrin, Fukuoka, and several collaborations with Arata Isozaki as well as Sanaa.

Sasaki argues that new developments in architecture require entirely new methodological approaches. In this respect, he has developed specific methods that enable a finely honed approach to complex formal problems. His work is in part based on his research on Riemannian, N-dimensioned space and a theory of generalized continuum mechanics.

The lecture is followed by a plenum discussion that includes among others the Heinz und Gisela Friedrichs Stiftung Guest Professor in Städelschule, Sanford Kwinter. Kwinter is one of the leading theorists in architecture with respect to a new materialism as the conceptual and factual basis for creative design.

The lecture and plenum discussion are organized by the Städelschule Architecture Class in collaboration with the Deutsches Architekturmuseum and are part of the SAC Summer Semester Lecture Series, Art and Architecture.

The Städelschule Architecture Class Lecture Series is supported by the Architekten- und Stadtplanerkammer Hessen.
