Marc Armengaud /AWP gives seminar talk “Building Nights” at The Berlage

Each semester the Berlage organises a series focusing on new approaches to architectural thinking to provoke dialogue and debate, engaging the audience in linking architectural thinking and practice to the history of design ideas and changing social and cultural conditions. The upcoming semester’s series, entitled “Building Nights,” examines the rhythms, designs, motivations, and politics of the city at night. Each lecture will focus on a particular architectural or urban case study exploring the various topics underlying architecture’s engagement with the night, from security issues to night clubs. The public seminar series is run in parallel to our studio project curriculum, which is exploring how Buenos Aires and London are emerging as 24/7 cities and how the night factors into the development of new master plans for these two cities.
