Constantinos Marcou - Poetics for the Uncertain

From Aristotle’s Poetics to Nicolas Bourriaud’s “relational aesthetics”, the Architectural image and the act of drawing as a process can create a threshold between the “real” and the “imaginary” in which knowledge, interaction and problematics of a specific context, play an important role.

Constantinos Marcou (London, 1988) is a writer, an architect and an urban designer. His research projects investigate the complex relationship between architecture and socio-political reform in the context of emancipatory struggles. During the last years, he has been engaged with several projects, for which he received international recognition. He exhibits and lectures both nationally and internationally and in 2015 he was invited to take part in the Tallinn Architecture Biennale.

The two-day event at the Museum of Architecture and Design (MAO) in Ljubljana represents the central gathering of the Future Architecture platform. The conference with 25 selected Future Architecture 2020 Call for Ideas applicants and invited guests is one of the most insightful annual gatherings around European architecture and showcases ideas and trends for the future development of the profession.
