A Participatory Architecture Told From Six Strategies
Speaker(s):
Giancarlo Mazzanti

Lecture Abstract

运盈彩票官网 Social values are at the center of Mazzanti’s architecture, which seeks to realize projects that give value to social transformations and that build communities. He has dedicated his professional life to improve the quality of life through the design of the environment and the idea of social equality. This lecture presents six strategies represented in six projects of ours that we developed so we can create an open and participative architecture along with the different actors involved throughout the design process.


Biography

Born in Barranquilla, a port city in northern Colombia, Giancarlo Mazzanti is an architect graduated from the Javeriana University in Colombia, with postgraduate studies in industrial design and architecture in Florence, Italy. He has academic experience as a visiting professor in Colombian universities, as well as in world-renowned universities such as Harvard, Columbia and Princeton; and is the first Colombian architect to have his works in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York (MoMa) and in the Center Pompidou, in Paris.

运盈彩票官网 Social values are at the center of Mazzanti’s architecture, which seeks to realize projects that give value to social transformations and that build communities. He has dedicated his professional life to improve the quality of life through the design of the environment and the idea of social equality.  His work has become a reflection of the current social changes occurring in Latin America and Colombia, showing that good architecture manages to build new identities for cities, towns and inhabitants, transcending reputations of crime and poverty.

This particular interest in social values led him and with his wife Laura Jaramillo to create Horizontal, a foundation born as an initiative to develop architecture and urbanism projects. Its view exceeds the classic form in which space is thought, aiming to enhance the search for security, equality, education, environmental adaptation and development of social capital. Horizontal use a variety of tools to understand, document, inform and design strategies that impact environments built in urban and rural territories from a local and inclusive view.
