Urban Grace

“Urban Grace” , is a lecture series organized by Cino Zucchi and Giancarlo Floridi at Politecnico di Milano.

The cycle of meetings intends to examine the work and widen the debate with a series of European architects and design studios engaged in both the design and the theoretical dimension through a constant exchange between empiricism and research.

Bovenbouw Architectuur/Dirk Somers (Antwerp), LAN/Umberto Napolitano (Paris), Lynch Architects/Patrick Lynch (London) all interpret this new direction of research in a specific way by designing buildings and spaces that are always different in relation to individual occasions and programs, yet all endowed with a gentle urbanity and with a sustainability capable of reflecting on their economy of means, on their integration to the context and on their duration in time.

The three lectures will take place on late Monday afternoons and will be transmitted in streaming on zoom.
