13 January | 13:00 EET
Guest Speaker: Krzysztof Ingarden architect, professor and the Dean of Faculty of Architecture and Fine Arts, Andrzej Frycz Modrzewski Krakow University
Lecture: Urban Utopias. Can We Avoid Their Mistakes?
The case study that professor Ingarden will discuss is a student work focused on the revitalization of a housing settlement from the 1960s, Tokyo. The project involved the Faculty of Architecture and Fine Arts of Andrzej Frycz Modrzewski Krakow University and the Faculty of Architecture of Hosei University from Tokyo. A site called Nishiyamato Danchi near Tokyo was selected and the students’ task from both faculties was to design an urban renovation and modernization project during one semester. Professor Ingarden chose to present one of the projects that were marked as excellent (5) since it clearly shows the consequent methodological urban approach.
