DAE- SOURCE #05: Memory and Monuments

October 10th, 2014

Design Academy Eindhoven – Source Lectures 2014

15 OCT 2014
10:00 – 16:00
DAE Auditorium
Emmasingel 14
5611 AZ Eindhoven

Instead of acknowledging the monument only as a fixed and consolidated typology, the symposium intends to discuss the power to recall memories and provoke thoughts – proper of monuments – into (designed) objects regardless of their size, value, exposure and durability. By reinterpreting their role that might not necessary be imagined as accessible by a community only but perhaps transferred to the context of people intimacy and privacy, it will also question the public nature of monuments.

The  Symposium is curated by Lorenzo Bini and Gennaro Postiglione, guest mentors at DAE-Contextual Design department.
