Tom Avermaete and Maurice Harteveld both encourage the architect to take on a socially relevant and culturally related position as safe guarders of the public domain. But what exactly can be the role of the architect in today’s society? Is there an alternative to the modernist position of relative autonomy? Both researchers will give their advice to the architectural profession.
Maurice Harteveld: ‘Design and People, Designers as People’
Tom Avermaete: ‘Public Spaces, Then and Now’
These lectures will take place, on 18 September from 8:45 to 10:30h
