The event will be focused on the legacy, recent dissemination and future of Italian architecture, investigated through the works of the well known masters in the last decades of the 20th Century and traced within the new landscape of ideas, talents and institutions operating in the country in our days. Located in a school that always had intense exchange and cultural attention to the Italian phenomena, the presentation will be followed by an open discussion involving the Cooper Union faculty and, possibly, the audience. The underlying concept is that the story of hegemony, crisis and changes taking place in the Italian scenario may serve has very device to understand how the role of architecture is globally changing today.
This event is open to current Cooper Union students, faculty and staff.
