Book Launch | The Hybrid Practitioner | 27 April, London

Hybrid Practitioner

Dialogues 19 – The Hybrid Practitioner – Invitation

Dialogues 19 - The Hybrid Practitioner

Henley Halebrown invites you to Dialogues 19 to the launch of The Hybrid Practitioner with William Mann, Yeoryia Manolopoulou and Helen Thomas alongside Mark Dorrian, Niall Hobhouse, Eireen Schreurs and Caroline Voet.

Architecture is a notoriously curious profession whose practice is difficult to pin down. Through investigating the fertile relationship between the cultural and scholarly production of academia and the process of designing and building in the material world, this international group of authors open up a fascinating array of possibilities for the active engagement of the hybrid practitioner with our present.

The book proposes and examines different, interrelated roles for the architect and researcher from the reproductive activities of teaching, consulting and publishing, through the reflective activities of drawing and writing, to the practical intentions of building.

Book Launch ‘Urban Andes’ – 26 September 2022 – Auditorium 200L, Heverlee

Urban Andes

Book Launch ‘Urban Andes’
26 September 2022
15h40-16h00
Auditorium 200L 00.07, Celestijnenlaan 200, 3001 Heverlee

Urban Andes
Design-led explorations to tackle climate change
Edited by Viviana d’Auria, Ward Verbakel, and Basil Descheemaeker

Against the backdrop of climate change and intensifying human occupation, explorative design strategies can play a role in recalibrating the relation between landscape logics and urbanization patterns in the Andes.

‘Urban Andes’ marks the start of the new series LAP on innovative design research in architecture, urbanism, and landscape. It is the result of a two-year collaboration (2018-2020), initiated by the CCA in cooperation with KU Leuven and various partners, including local organizations and the VLIR-UOS. A co-production of students, researchers and designers, this book suggests alternative futures in the light of climate change in the Andes, crossing scales of landscape systems to new settlement typologies within the Cachi River basin of Ayacucho, Peru.
