In this workshop, students will study urban design in a global context, by analyzing actual case studies in the city of Madrid (Spain). They will explore the multidimensional, integrative and inclusive process of urban design in addition, its relation to architecture and context. Students will research the specific challenges encountered in the design and management of such a city as Madrid, including the physical, environmental, socio-cultural, economic, legal and philosophical aspects.
Masking Madrid is a critical and experimental vision of architecture and contemporary urban society. We propose a territorial game of Masks, an architecture about the making of architecture.
As Hejduk in Victims, we will project our Masks to portray an analogous city, an experimental version of the future based on the analysis of the past and the present of the contemporary city.
The Masks will mobilize a repertoire of building elements drawn into an exchange between theatrical and formal / expressive practices, throughout radicalism, detour and digression as a critical reflection.
Masking Madrid must be a constellation of public spheres as narratives of autonomous subjectivity. We will seek to enact the multidisciplinary direction through which architectonical practices and processes come most alive. We will constitute a map of contemporary knowledge circuits were art, theory, science, culture, ecology, and politics collides.
