VISITING SPEAKER: Building Urban Culture
|Building Urban Culture : A lecture by architect David Gianotten from OMA
The Dean of the Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Visual Arts is very pleased to welcome architect David Gianotten, Partner-in-charge (OMA Asia Pacific) for a special lecture on ‘Building Urban Culture’.
Through a series of urban and cultural projects that OMA has designed in different contexts, David will illustrate how architecture can contribute to the urban culture of different cities and bring new, unexpected urban conditions to a place. From gallery spaces, to performing arts venues, to large headquarter buildings, to masterplans, OMA has been experimenting with urban cultures of different scales and typologies, and the inherent potential of such.
Urban Culture is not necessarily a fixed parameter in a specific context, but a morphing intangible entity that contributes to and changes with the context. Architecture is part of that urban culture.
