The Städelschule Architecture Class (SAC) presents its forthcoming public lecture series. The series commences in May, runs till July and is entitled, 'The Production of Appearance'. The series has been conceived and is executed by Nikolaus Hirsch and Johan Bettum.
With The Production of Appearance, SAC will address how contemporary architecture can be understood in terms of how it emerges in a critical public context. This context includes the way that architecture is mediated in printed and online media, but also the subtle and not-so-subtle means that architects engage with to manifest an identity for their buildings and transform formal and informal gestures into architectural qualities.
Unless otherwise stated, the lectures take place in Städelschule Aula at 19:00. Dates and guest lecturers are as follows:
