Air in motion - Iñaki Ábalos and Renata Sentkiewicz


On the 15 May, Iñaki Ábalos and Renata Sentkiewicz (Ábalos + Sentkiewicz, Madrid) looked at how a thermodynamic conception of architecture stresses the importance of air.

It demands to project the air and not just the materials, forms and iconography. This leads, to some extent, to a growing evanescence of the spatial systems which, in turn, leads to new ways to experience architecture. In fact, projecting the air gives prominence to the somatic experience of the subject.

Iñaki Ábalos is an architect and Professor of Architectural Design at GSD Harvard. Renata Sentkiewicz is an architect and Associate Professor of Architectural Project Design at the ETSAM, Madrid.

This session was presented by Luis Feduchi from UQ School of Architecture.
