Design Critic and co-founder of Design Emergency
Alice Rawsthorn, award-winning design critic, author of critically acclaimed books on design, and honorary senior fellow of the Royal College of Art with an honorary doctorate from the University of the Arts, will join IE School of Architecture and Design's 2021-2022 Lecture Series "Beyond Scale".
Stay tuned for more information.
“BEYOND SCALE” LECTURE SERIES:
The 21-22 Lecture Series at IE School of Architecture & Design addresses ‘scale’ as a topic that goes beyond its spatial dimension. The series aims at linking current challenges and questions within and beyond architecture and design, from the macroscale of infrastructural and territorial dynamics to the microscale of the pixel component. We aim to set up conversations around topics that pertain to architecture and design, but that also have a considerable impact beyond our discipline, such as:
Energy consumption and environmental impact of the built environment, at all scales.
Transformation and reutilization versus production from scratch (of objects, buildings, fashion, software, etc)
Inclusivity, diversity, parity, and questions of care in the professional and academic environment
Global practices versus local awareness of specific contexts
The digital realm as a space for creation, action, protest, vindication, etc
Lectures will take place in hybrid format from our Segovia and Madrid campuses at 18pm CET
