Livestream | AnA | Dominique Coulon + Jean-Christoph Masson
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 Tuesday, December 8th, 2020 live from 19:00 CET, Berlin time, two of the most relevant French architects will talk on our virtual stage 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:
