Lecture: Mauricio Rocha
UN LIMITED MEANS | 2012 Fall Lecture Series presented by SPACE.CITY spacecityseattle.org
Space.City would like to announce its upcoming Fall Lecture Series, “Un Limited Means.” The series is a play on words which superimposes our own preconceptions that architects working under unique or difficult circumstances, have limited means to create architecture, with the possibility that these very same conditions might actually provide for liberating design conditions. The series will provide a unique view into firms focusing on the roles that local construction techniques, politics, finances, the environment, and social issues play in the creation of their architectural works.
Lecture 1 of 3 in the series: Mauricio Rocha, Mexico City -Thursday, October 11, 2012 | 6:30PM
Mauricio Rocha, founder of Taller de Arquitectura in 1991, is a Mexico City native who has continuously been able to develop significant cultural and award-worthy project throughout his career. His work is a symbol of how process varies depending on the circumstances presented by the physical and social environment in which they are placed. Because of his success while confronting these issues, Rocha has received numerous grants and prizes for his work and ephemeral pieces, and continues to teach at Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico, Universidad Anauac, and Universidad Iberoamericana.
Rocha’s models and drawings also form a part of the archives at the George Pompidou Center in Paris.
