Wonne Ickx will teach this Spring Semester at the Graduate School of Design (GSD - Harvard University) in Cambridge. The studio is called 'Moving things around' and uses Aldo Rossi’s Small Scientific Theatre from 1978, to reflect upon the relation between architecture and image. "The writing on the Small Scientific Theatre has generally focused on the importance of memory within the work of Aldo Rossi. In the studio we will explore how this experimental miniature stage was established as a space in which objects, 2D drawings and 3D constructions of different scales could coexist in a seemingly unproblematic way. Components from classical scenography (flats, backdrops, legs, wings, props, etc.) and premodern theatrical devices (such as 19th Century paper or toy theaters) will be used as tools and media to investigate this relation." Wonne Ickx will lecture on behalf of PRODUCTORA on February 28, 2017 at 6.30 pm in Pier Auditorium, Gund Hall. / external link studio / external link lecture
Lecture by Carlos Bedoya at Iowa State University11 / 16 / 2016 | LECTURES
AMES, Iowa — Carlos Bedoya, founding partner of Mexico City-based architecture firm Productora, will present 'Architecture with a Detour' Wednesday, Nov. 16, at Iowa State University.

His presentation is free and open to the public. Bedoya will look at Productora’s work 'through a set of architectural variables as a means to tease out the practice's engagement not with solving problems per se, but with engaging the inherent 'difficulty' of architecture as a productive element of design,' he said. 'Following Josef Maria Rilke’s writings, a key question of Productora’s research has been to ask how design should not only attempt to resolve difficulties, but to create architecture as difficulty: architecture imagined as a sort of detour.'

Difficult Double, Lecture at EPFL, Lausanne04 / 27 / 2015 | LECTURES
Wonne Ickx will lecture at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne on Monday, April 27th at 6:30pm. The lecture series, ‘The Difficult Double’, aims to find links between firms and their influences through history. On demand of Kersten Geers, Wonne Ickx explore the work of PRODUCTORA in relation to the work of Ricardo Legorreta. From the intruduction: "Difficult Double is primarily a series of lectures, which aims to offer to EPFL a portrait of the contemporary panorama of culturally involved practices around the world. The format, echoing the Venturian idea of architecture as a ‘difficult whole’, couples each time an architect’s work and his/her own main cultural reference in the architectural production of the past, starting from the basic assumption that architecture is not so much about inventions but more about intentions. The architect and his/her obsession compose a ‘double portrait’, a ‘difficult double’, which should provide a deeper comprehension of both the architect’s and the double’s oeuvre."
Wonne Ickx will teach at the 3rd edition of Porto Academy, which will be held at the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Porto (FAUP), designed by the Pritzker Price winner Álvaro Siza.
