Updated Brief

Lund Architecture Symposium 2013


The annual symposium of Architecture - at Lund School of Architecture - is closing in. Since a decade this event has produced the opportunity for meetings between an international panel of architects and our own regional architectural culture in a fruitful way.
We believe architecture is operating worldwide today. Everywhere, in whatever location, we are obliged to deal with specific situations and complex parameters in respect to local contexts.
This set of parameters is the OPEN framework for the 2013 symposium-discussion.
The theme of this year; “Europe’s Calling!” – intends to raise the issue of how the European architectural culture presents itself inwards and outwards.
We look forward to an open-minded discussion on this topic during our symposium of 2013 where architects from mainly Europe will give their personal contribution to the matter.
We welcome you all to take part in this event!

lost lecturers

Unfortunately we have been informed that both Peter Cook and Pippo Ciorra are double booked. It's sad to lose two big names for the symposium.
We are currently in negotiation with Belinda Tato from Ecosistema Urbano. Hopefully she will be able to attend. Fingers crossed!
