Critical Practice Seminar # 2

In this two-day seminar, Visiting Research Fellow Chiara Ingrosso will show a project entitled The Citytellers by the Italian photographer and filmmaker Francesco Jodice, a trilogy about three different global cities: Sao Paolo, Aral and Dubai. The Citytellers explores the transformations of today’s megalopolises, particularly in terms of new social, political, economic and religious phenomena. The following day, students in the seminar group will explore parts of Johannesburg to make an adjunct short film to The Citytellers, ‘telling Johannesburg through the cinema.’

    Architecture enables us to simultaneously reflect on the past and forecast new futures. Even at its most understated, architecture inherently looks forward.

    Our quest for the epitome of architecture, in education and in practice, should be to design quality liveable spaces for all in society.
