Theme: What is Ornament?
As part of the 5th edition of Lisbon Architecture Triennale, The Poetics of Reason
Synopsis: Within the history of architecture, the debate about ornament has defined theoretical positions and driven sudden changes of paradigm. Despite or because of its importance, ornament in architecture escapes a final definition. What is ornament? today remains an open question, which doesn’t need definitive answers but instead prompts a series of possible discussions. The different guests, which are all contributors to the Culturgest exhibition, answer these questions reflecting their proper specific position.
Moderation: Ambra Fabi and Giovanni Piovene
Keynotes: Sam Jacob, Konstantinos Pantazis (Point Supreme) and Matilde Cassani
