Back to All Events

Pier Vittorio Aureli at the Harvard GSD

  • Piper Auditorium, Gund Hall 48 Quincy Street Cambridge, MA, 02138 United States (map)

In recent years, architecture has retreated into the crafting of unique objects while large-scale transformations are mostly driven by commercial and technocratic forces whose impact seems to go far beyond the scale of what architecture can do. To make a territorial project with the means of “architecture” is as if one went to war armed with a club. Yet despite its inevitable complexity, a territorial project can acquire legibility only through architecture. To sustain my position, I will show a few projects whose goal is the possibility of building up a method to construct a territorial project by means of architecture.

Pier Vittorio Aureli is a visiting professor at Yale School of Architecture, also teaches at the Architectural Association in London, and is a principal of Dogma.
