Livestream | AnA | Stefano Boeri & Sou Fujimoto
Architects, not Architecture aims to bring to the stage what we normally don’t see. We invite well-known architects, who instead of talking about their award winning international projects, are asked to talk about themselves. They speak about their path, their influences and experiences, and dive deeper into their intellectual biography. This makes possible a better understanding of their work, without them even mentioning it.
On Wednesday, July 8th, 2020 live from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (CEST, Berlin time), two remarkable architects, who we deeply admire, talked on our virtual stage and there was a rerun (not live) from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m (CEST, Berlin time).
Following architects talked about their personal experiences and important creative periods in their lives and, as always at “AnA“, not a word may be lost about their projects:
