July 10th - On drawing
Architecture representation, besides being a technical device or an artistic object, is a form of thought and an expression of knowledge. Images convey intent, and architects, as producers of images, have represented their visions(and,therefore, themselves) in distinctive manners along time. From the apparently spontaneous sketch to hyperrealistic computer generated images, from models to sections, all these might be understood as forms of drawing. In this evening, we’re bringing together makers of images and collectors of images and find out why they often do both.

July 11th - On building
Building is an act of transformation. Of changing and inclosing otherwise open spaces; of turning visions into physical reality. Planing the way architecture is to be built is to orchestrate an immense amount of mater, energy and money; heroic technical ability or precious ancestral craftsmanship. After an intense, sometimes violent moment, these building choices endure, convening a vast number of cultural values, of locality or appropriation, exuberance or restraint

July 12th - On the Monumental
Architecture has the power to influence society in a meaningful way. This power can surpass the scale of an intervention: A large endeavour may reshape a hole section of a city at once, but a modestly sized built artefact might hold in itself an immense collective significance. Both are monumental in their effects, on transcending their material condition. In this panel we will navigate through this aspirational sense of architecture, to contribute, beyond what is commissioned, to an ongoing shared history.
