South America Project Lecture: Jean Pierre Crousse “Architecture Matters”
6:30 pm - 8:00 pm (EDT)
- Gund Hall
- 48 Quincy Street
Jean Pierre Crousse, a principal of Barclay and Crousse (Lima), maintains that architecture is fabricated by matter—not only the physical matter that shapes the way in which a project becomes a building, but also the cultural, personal, social, technological, and local background. Crousse will show in his lecture the projects of Barclay and Crousse, whose work in a region where climate conditions make the search for shelter a superfluous notion in the conception of architecture, a multi-dimensional approach emerges naturally and nurtures each project differently, at the scale of the landscape and the detail, for the sake of local pertinence.
Free and open to the public.
