This spring Josep Lluis Mateo is Visiting Professor in Architecture at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design.
The course “Object studio” has as an objective to precisely define projects based on the simultaneous presence of three conditions:
1. Place. Here, it is the city, at the border, with the presence nearby of nature. Surrounded, dialogue with the exterior in continuity or in opposition. The exterior.
2. Content. Use. Interior. Conventional briefs (dwellings, offices…) seen from a special viewpoint that aims to discover the magic of the everyday. To analyze, observe and propose new conditions of use.
3. Material. Our projects, always starting with abstract visions, take form, become intelligible, by means of material. Architecture as the expression of physical, material culture.
Josep Lluis Mateo will be in residence on the following dates: January 23, February 3, 5, 17 and 19, March 3, 5, 24 and 26, April 7, 9, 21 and 23, and May 5 and 7.
