A Seminar with Aristide Antonas

Wednesday November 25th from 18.00 to 20.00
33 Bedford Square, First Floor Front

The work of Aristide Antonas represents today one of the most interesting practices that uses architecture and design as a form of enquiry into the relationship between architecture and contemporary forms of life. In the lecture Aristide will present his recent work – projects, drawings, texts – as a radical reinterpretation of the concept of ‘minimal habitat’.

“The consequences of a post network social sphere coincide with a different urgency for housing. A silent transformation of the concept of the minimal is operated in the interior of the domestic space. The role of the furniture is re-examined while the inhabitants became users of a different infrastructure. What would this condition of inhabitation mean for the recent radical decline of the west and the new relations between North and South?”
