YTAA winners and architects Wang Shu and Paul Robbrecht in discussion at BOZAR
What are the ways European and Asian architects and designers deal with the topic of heritage in their contemporary projects? A conversation between two leading architects of Asia and Europe and YTAA winners will take place on Monday 22 Oct at 19.00 at BOZAR in Brussels.
The exchange of ideas between the 2012 Prizker Prize Winner Wang Shu of the Chinese office Amateur Architecture Studio and the Belgian architect Paul Robbrecht from Robbrecht en Daem architecten will focus on the significance and on the role of cultural legacy in their respective architectural work and will surface convergencies and differences in the way European and Asian architects and designers deal with the topic of heritage in their contemporary projects. The Belgian professor and editor Véronique Patteeuw will moderate this discussion.
The conversation will be preceded by a presentation of student projects of shortlisted graduates of the Young Talent Architecture Award by Mies van der Rohe Foundation from Korea, China and Europe.
The event is part of ASEM’s cultural programme (Asia-Europe Meeting).
