Graduate Faculty member José Ramón Sierra y Gómez de León is participating in a roundtable discussion at the Cooper Union in New York.
HOW WILL WE LIVE TOGETHER?
FRIDAY, APRIL 29, 2022, 5:30 – 7:30PM
This event will be conducted in-person in The Rose Auditorium at the Cooper Union in New York, NY and through Zoom. Registration is required.
“How will we live together?” was the theme proposed in mid-2019 by the XVII Venice Architecture Biennale. After everything that happened as a result of the pandemic, it is impossible not to see a certain hint of premonition in the question raised by curator Hashim Sarkis and not least in the answers given by the participating teams at the Biennale.
The Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda of Spain, in collaboration with AC/E and The Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture of The Cooper Union, is pleased to invite you to this event, which includes eight Spanish teams that exhibited at the Biennale. Their work will be presented as brief manifestos in conjunction with an exemplary image that speaks to the many architectural implications posed by the question, “How Will We Live Together?”
The event will be introduced by Nader Tehrani, Dean of The Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture of The Cooper Union; Iñaqui Carnicero, Director General of Urban Agenda and Architecture at the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda; and Raquel Sánchez, Minister of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda. Besides José Ramón Sierra y Gómez de León (PRÁCTICA) other participants include Carlos Bañon (Singapore University of Technology and Design ), Carmen Moreno (Higher Technical School of Architecture of Granada), Cristina Parreño (MIT School of Architecture and Planning), Jacobo García-Germán (GARCIAGERMAN ARQUITECTOS), Tomás García Píriz (CUAC Arquitectura), Benedetta Tagliabue (Miralles Tagliabue EMBT, Enric Miralles Foundation), and Luis Rojo (ROJO / FERNÁNDEZ-SHAW).
The presentations will be followed by a roundtable discussion including all participants, hosted by Nader Tehrani and moderated by the curator of the 2020 XVII Venice Architecture Biennale, Hashim Sarkis.
The event is co-sponsored with The Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda of Spain.
