Architectural Pairs: Architecture vs. Landscape

Part of: The City as a Workplace


Architecture vs. Landscape is a two round match on the supremacy of two apparently so different ideologies.

This is the first event in the ‘Architectural Pairs’ lecture and discussion series featuring Bjarke Ingels (BIG – Copenhagen) and Martin Rein-Cano (Topotek1 – Berlin).

The re?appropriation of architectural systems and geometries has enriched the design process of the profession. This phenomenon has made the landscape architect aware of strategies that were often alien to his milieu, and thus resulting in a re?conceptualization of landscape ideals. Consequently, architecture has begun to adapt the dynamic and temporal qualities inherent to landscape. These peculiar landscape traits have been translated into new architectural strategies.

After the consecutive lectures there will be a panel discussion on the pair of topics covered in this lectures.

Moderator – Daniel Dendra.
