Conversation Philip Urspurng and Ábalos Sentkiewicz on Thermodynamics, Architecture and Beauty

Ábalos-Ursprung_póster-web [1]The IE Master in Architectural Design Conversation Series presents Philip Ursprung, Iñaki Ábalos and Renata Sentkiewicz in an open talk where they will share their approach to the topics of the reconstruction of the subject and the architectural experience, the relations between space and matter, the use of thermodynamic criteria in design protocols, and how each approach can reveal the idea of ​​beauty.
Since the sciences have expanded to such an extent that they have transformed the whole world into a laboratory, artists have perforce become White coats amongst other White coats: namely, all of us. We are all engaged in the same collective experiments. Both Sloterdijk and Eliasson areexploring new ways of escaping the narrow constraints of modernism. They benefit from the rich humus provided by the sciences, but they turn scientific results upside down, not to tell a great narrative of progress, but simply to explore the nature of the atmospheres in which we are all collectively attempting to survive.”
