Mexico City projekt “Foundation Alumnos47” Didier Faustino // Mesarchitecture
On the 2nd of November, Architecture Open Lecture Series will host architect and artist Didier Fiuza Faustino. Starting at 6 pm, this lecture will take place at the Von Krahl Theatre (Rataskaevu 10).
This autumn, the Faculty of Architecture and Urban Design of the Estonian Academy of Arts is inviting a number of exciting architects, urban planners, academics from across the world to Tallinn for the Open Lecture Series. The lectures are free of charge, in English, take place every fortnight, and are open to everyone – for both students and professionals of the field, general audience and students considering architecture for their further studies.
Arriving to Tallinn on the 2nd of November is Paris-based architect and artist Didier Fiuza Faustino, who is focused on how people relate to space and creates human-scale spaces. Faustino’s spatial installations are especially well known: he’s designed striking temporary stages that invite people to perform and speak up, as well as created spatial installation projects for exhibitions, asking questions about the sense of a space. Faustino’s lecture titled “Unbuilt memories” is one that also sculpture, installation, spatial design and interior architecture students, lecturers and audience should definitely not miss. All open talks are free and in English.
Didier Fiuza Faustino is an architect and artist working on the relationship between body and space. He started his own practice at the crossroad of art and architecture just after graduating in architecture in 1995. He has been developing since then a multi-faceted approach, ranging from installation to experimentation, from visual art to the creation of multi-sensorial spaces, mobile architecture and buildings. After teaching six years at the AA School in London and being two years editor in chief of the French architecture and design magazine CREE in 2015 and 2016, Didier Faustino is currently fully dedicating his time on architecture projects (Mexico, Costa Rica, Belgium, Portugal and France) and art installation and exhibitions (Vienna, Geneva, Lisbon, Los Angeles).
