Event Date: 15th October 2009
Speaker: Stephano Boeri
Venue: Rachna Sansad, Academy of Architecture

The lecture discussed the intricate issues that surround the generation of spaces both for and representative of contemporary politics. Situated within today’s political sphere in which spectacle, leadership, strategy and vision mix freely, a series of on-going architectural and urban projects will be analyzed from the perspective of their public and political use; three contemporary projects triggered by a particular mix of potent visions of the future, world level events and political spaces that once again place the practice of architecture at the crossroads between power and ideal.
