A Manual of Architectural Possibilities by David Garcia Studio

Series: Lecture and Book Launch
Date: Friday 8 October 2010
Time: 18:00
Venue: Open Room 1
Running time: 70 mins

MAP (Manual of Architectural Possibilities) is a publication of projects and visions that arise through research into territories, which can be concrete or abstract, but always put into question. Map is not a magazine (it only has two pages) and is not a book (it is issued twice a year). Map presents itself as a folded poster (A1) where information is immediate, dense and objective on one side, and architectural and subjective on the other. Map is a guide to potential actions in the built environment, a folded encyclopaedia of the possible, a topography of ideas, or a poster on the wall.

Architect David A. Garcia was born in Barcelona, Spain in 1970 and graduated from The Bartlett School of Architecture in 2002. He runs David Garcia Studio and creator of the publication MAP (Manual of Architectural Possibilities). David holds a teaching position at the schools of architecture in Lund and Copenhagen, and lectures regularly worldwide. During the past year he has exhibited in Beijing, New York, Chicago, Madrid, Barcelona and Denmark.

All lectures are open to members of the public, staff and students unless otherwise stated.
