Aristide Antonas, one of the best contemporary voices in Europe, will give a seminar today at the AA within the framework of the 'City/Architecture' PhD. Aristide's is one of the 12 practices we invited to contribute to The Supreme Achievement so we will definitely be there to hear him discuss domesticity, form, and the nature of his own work which uses our favourite media - drawings and text - as key instrument.
The seminar is titled A House for Doing Nothing and it will take place in 33 Bedford Square, First Floor Front, at 6 pm.
“The consequences of a post network social sphere coincide with a different urgency for housing. A silent transformation of the concept of the minimal is operated in the interior of the domestic space. The role of the furniture is re-examined while the inhabitants became users of a different infrastructure. What would this condition of inhabitation mean for the recent radical decline of the west and the new relations between North and South?”
