01 / 18 / 2017 | LECTURES, ACADEMIC

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
