Couplings: The Secret Life of Modern Architecture
March 3rd, 2017
CCEMiami would like to invite you to the conference Couplings: The Secret Life of Modern Architecture with the Spanish architect Beatriz Colomina at Miami Center of Architecture and Design.
Women are the ghosts of modern architecture, everywhere present, crucial, but strangely invisible. Unacknowledged, they are destined to haunt the field forever. But correcting the record is not just a question of adding a few names or even thousands to the history of architecture. It is not just a matter of human justice or historical accuracy, but a way to more fully understand architecture and the complex ways it is produced.
Architecture is deeply collaborative, more like moviemaking than visual art, for example. But unlike movies, this is hardly ever acknowledged. Until recently, it has been a secret carefully guarded.
