The lecture will focus on Mecanoo’s recent built work. It will include 3 main projects in detail and a resume of the work from the point of view of these principles: PEOPLE, PLACE, POETRY.
Discovering unexpected solutions for the specifics of programme and context is the foremost challenge in all assignments. Mecanoo treats each project as a unique design statement embedded within its context and orchestrated specifically for the people who use it. Preoccupied not by a focus on form, but on process, consultation, context, urban scale and integrated sustainable design strategies, the practice creates culturally significant buildings with a human touch.
