As Term 2 begins to draw to a close, this week sees the beginning of end-of-term previews, limiting the number of events that can take place this week as students focus on preparing, presenting and understanding the feedback from these sessions to have a productive Easter break ahead. However, on Thursday, architect, Columbia and Princeton professor and winner of the Silver Lion for the best research project at the 2014 Venice Architecture Biennale Andrés Jaque will speak at the AA about Architecture as Rendered Society. In his talk, Jaque will discuss how architecture, nature, infrastructure and the domestic can be more intrinsically woven together, using his projects like COSMO, last year’s summer pavilion for MoMA PS1 or his celebrated Never Never Land house on stilts in Ibiza to illustrate how this can be made possible.
Also this week is a book launch of a recent title by Alexander Tzonis and Kenneth Powell, also on Thursday evening, in the AA Bookshop on The Architecture of Jacques Ferrier.
