Francesco Careri / Walkscapes - Lecture

CAU PUC-Rio is pleased to invite you to a lecture by architect Francesco Careri, Professor of Università degli Studi Roma Tre, October 10 (next Thursday) at 14 am, at PUC-Rio.

Francesco Careri is lecturer at the Department of Architecture of Roma Tre University. In 1995 he founded the urban art laboratory Stalker / Osservatorio Nomade, and in 2009 Laboratorio Arti Civiche, interdisciplinar research group which searches for a creative interaction between citizens and the built environment they live in.
Prof. Careri will present his book "Walkscapes: walking as aesthetic practice" (Gustavo Gili, 2013), a work of reference that discusses the expansion of the disciplinary field of architecture and the crisis of their traditional interpretative categories from the walking act as primary processing territory and landscape construction, aesthetic action and urban intervention.
The event is an initiative of the Graduate Program in Architecture at PUC-Rio, held in partnership with the Department of Arts and Design, Course of Architecture and Urbanism and the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities at the University.
The book, now published in English and Spanish with a preface by Gilles A. Tiberghien, is now being released by publisher Gustavo Gili in Portuguese. And the presentation of the Brazilian edition, written by Prof. Paola Berenstein Jacques (UFBA), can now be read here:
