Lecture

João Santa-Rita

Traveling (through space) presents a collection of projects that stress the idea of how a certain shape of space or a collection of spaces contributes to the organisation of the spatial structure of a building. From the most remote idea of a patio as a space and social organiser of a house, spaces evolve over time into more complex shapes and forms that in turn reflect the spiritual and social values of the different times. Spaces relate the inside and the outside of a building, as well as reinforce the relation with its surrounding context. Spaces are a consequence of the existence of architecture, and all their  potential lies in the fact that they provide different atmospheres according to the nature of a programme and the characteristics of a place - cultural, physical and climatic. Even in a ruin, as a presence of a once existing architecture, we recognise how space gives a sense of collection - the collection of remaining and fallen parts and elements. 

João Santa-Rita is a Lisbon-based architect. After graduating from Escola Superior de Belas-Artes in Lisbon, Santa-Rita was a founding partner of Santa-Rita Arquitectos in 1990 and Santa-Rita Associados in 2016. As teacher, lecturer and jury member, he was invited to universities like University of Minnesota, SCI-ARCH, Columbia University, University of Granada, Rhode Island School of Design and Savannah College of Art and Design, and others. In addition to numerous solo and group exhibitions, Santa-Rita has participated in the Triennale di Milano as well as the Biennale di Venezia, and his work was nominated for the Mies Van der Rohe Prize in 2012. His projects has been published in numerous international journals and magazines. Santa-Rita served as President of the Portuguese Chamber of Architects from 2014 to 2016.

This lecture is part of the series, Master lectures 2019-20: Portuguese Contemporary architecture. The series is a collaboration between Städelschule, Deutsches Architekturmuseum and Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences.

Florian Busch - The Other Side of the Moon

Florian Busch is an architect based in Tokyo. 

After graduating from the Architectural Association in London, he worked with Toyo Ito for five years before opening Florian Busch Architects (FBA) in 2009.

In its first ten years, the office has produced a remarkable body of work: A wide spectrum of structures and buildings — cultural centres, libraries, museums, and some of the world's most unusual houses — have led to awards and made Florian Busch a much sought after architect, both in Japan and around the world. 

At the core of the work is the understanding of architecture as an open process. Drawing on a global network of the industry’s top experts, FBA begins every project bydevising strategies of collaboration to reach beyond the imagined. 

Florian Busch has been invited as a speaker, lecturer, and guest critic at institutions world-wide.
