WORLD-RENOWNED ARCHITECTS PIERRE D’AVOINE AND FRED SCOTT DELIVERED LECTURES AT BHSAD

July 30th, 2017. A lecture by Fred Scott was dedicated to practical and theoretical changes in architecture. In his speech, Fred explored the alternative to the sequence of demolition and new building that makes up the usual practice of architecture.

By bringing together ideas on what can make the foundation of interim, or interventional, design, Fred Scott fills a wide gap in the literature covering the evolution of interior space. The lecture covers the issues brought up by Fred Scott’s book published in London by Rutledge publishing house in 2007.

Pierre d’Avoine offered his own vision of the issue of creating public spaces: “The more repressive the bureaucratic state, the greater the challenge to make public space without people resorting to ever more unconventional and subversive strategies.

Self-regulation and balance are difficult to maintain all the time, and they become a cause of antagonism between marginal groups and the mainstream of society. The latter often dramatically overreacts and in the process infringes the rights of all of us - witness the Government's legislation to prohibit 'travellers' from moving around the country. The dilemma is how to allow for spontaneity, flux and dynamism in the public arena without tipping over into chaos and disorder”.

Students of BA (Hons) Interior Architecture аnd Design program had a chance to ask their questions and to interact with Pierre d’Avoine and Fred Scott in person.
