Lecture by Luis Urculo.
On Tuesday January 28, 2014 Luis Urculo, principal of Estudio Luis Urculo in Madrid, Spain (www.luisurculo.com) lectured at Kent State University, Florence Program. His lecture was introduced by Marco Brizzi, professor of the “Architecture and Media” theory course.
Luis Urculo, architect and visual artist, studied architecture at the ETSAM Technical School of Architecture in Madrid and at the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) in Chicago. In 2006 he established his own studio. Since then, Urculo’s videos have become well known and highly respected throughout the architecture industry. He develops a work of small and indefinite architecture in an opened format. “I no longer know what architecture is and what an architect should do”, says Urculo. “I am interested in the peripheral side to architecture, the processes, developments and approaches that can be manipulated, sampled and translated into other scales, adapting to the composition of the project, creating new scenes/ experiences / expectations not contemplated previously.”
