LC 2015_LE CORBUSIER 50 YEARS AFTER

 

In August 1965, Le Corbusier, recognized as the most important architect of the twentieth-century, passed away in the Mediterranean Sea waters. For this reason, the Architectural Design Department at the Universidad Politécnica de Valencia, with the support of the Fondation Le Corbusier in Paris, promotes this international conference in Valencia.

 

Le Corbusier was one of the most prolific architects in the creation of links between ideas and images, between visual arts and architecture, between history and modernity. The power of his ideas was continually being tested and confirmed by his architectural work. In his projects, writings, paintings and sculptures he worked out different visions of what should match architectural modernity, which drew on a personal background built upon diverse ideological references. 

 

If there is any outstanding feature in his career, it is the transversal condition of his creative work. This idea of transversality enables us to open this conference to artists, historians, book publishers, photographers, thinkers and, of course, architects

 

The LC 2015 congress will be held on November 18-20 2015 at the Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura de la Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV), which has been recently ranked as the best technical university in Spain by the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) 2014.

AALTO BEYOND FINLAND ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN

2nd Alvar Aalto Researchers Network Seminar: Call for papers

Rovaniemi, Finland 16-18 February 2015

February 16 2015 - February 18 2015

The 2nd Alvar Aalto Researchers Network Seminar, “Aalto beyond Finland. Architecture and Design” aims to create a network of researchers interested in the work of the Finnish architect Alvar Aalto. The meeting in Rovaniemi, in February 2015, will be an opportunity to present up-to-date research and provide a significant meeting point for those fascinated by Aalto’s buildings and projects, in a relaxed and collegial atmosphere.

Aalto’s work has had an exceptional impact beyond Finland since the opening of his office in Turku in 1927. Before World War II, his furniture was exhibited in strategic venues in Europe and America, from which Aalto established a solid network of professional contacts. During the post-war period, he took on many assignments and received great recognition in various foreign countries. His buildings, scattered around the world, as well as his unrealised projects, contributed to spreading Aalto’s design method in different architectural communities, thereby proving its validity outside Finland. Even countries in which Aalto did not design any projects or construct any buildings, such as Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, and Portugal, were influenced by his work. Although recent scholarly studies have contributed to an exploration of Aalto’s work abroad and its impact in the international context, they are fragmented, dwelling on national questions, without a holistic view. The 2nd Alvar Aalto Researchers Network Seminar “Aalto beyond Finland. Architecture and Design” strives for a comprehensive survey of the impact of Aalto’s architectural and design works abroad, in order to highlight those thematic communalities and connections among different international experiences.
