Architecture ≠ Art

20.05.2014

A SERIES OF LECTURES AND DISCUSSIONS, MAY–JUNE AND SEPTEMBER 2014

Architecture can hardly be defined as a purely artistic or a purely technical practice. The point of departure of our Architecture ≠ Art programme is the question of whether architecture is or is not art. By posing this question, we enter the very core of the problem of architectural creation – that is, we question the very definition of architecture. How should we think of architecture today? How (if at all) does architecture enter the field of art, and how (if at all) does art enter the field of architecture?
