WE WOMEN ALSO ACT: THE VALUE OF IDEAS
Espai Morillas (C/ Pallars, 391-393)
The COAC’S Open Group of Women Architects continues with the series of talks “We women also act”. In the next session, entitled “The Value of Ideas”, we want to give space and time for a conversation about this initial stage where the values, principles and concepts that underlie the architecture and urbanism that will later become are generated. We propose to talk about the creative seeds that are rooted in us and the foundational purposes.
Projects carried out by architects and urbanists are initiated through complex ideas and concepts, but this prime moment is conditioned by a variety of functional, legal, economic and temporal factors, among many others, that can cloud the world of ideas. Where do we start these processes? What is the value of ideas today? How are these initial phases generated in the projects? How does our society understand and value ideas? What horizons and limits do we give to ideas? What challenges do we face?
We will share this meeting with the architects Eulàlia Martin, Maria Sisternas, Claudina Relat, Lara Pérez-Porro and Sílvia Sasot, who will talk about their own experiences and others known from all over the world. The event will be coordinated by the architect Sílvia Sasot, who specialises in educational spaces, and will be presented by Ana María Álvarez, the coordinating architect of the COAC’s Open Group of Women Architects.
Prior to the start of the event, there will be a guided tour to get to know the “Pioneers Kitchen” space, where the talk will take place.
