Event description
Sto Werkstatt is proud to present ‘A Material Approach: Designing Specific Buildings in a Globalised World’ a lecture by Duarte Lobo Antunes

About this Event

Through a series of recent projects, Duarte will demonstrate how ACME’s design thinking is shaped by the specific geographical and cultural contexts they build in, while also welcoming cross-fertilization –ideas that are born out of a project in Melbourne, re-emerge as details in Leeds.

How does one design spaces that are both of their place but have universal appeal? How is building in Kent different from designing for Muscat? How is it similar? What does it mean to be local and context-specific in a world that increasingly shares that same references? How can such a diverse studio come together to find a common language?

These are the questions that drive ACME’s thinking and designs on a daily basis and will be addressed during the evening’s talk.

ACME is an internationally renowned practice of about 70 architects, interior designers, and researchers originating from 24 different countries working on cities and buildings across Europe, Australia, the Middle East and Asia.

A Material Approach is series by Sto Werkstatt which spotlights the relationships between architects and materials. Each edition offers a fascinating insight into the mind of an architect and their creative process – how decisions are made around the specification of materials and how architecture informs and is informed by particular qualities of materials. Sto Werkstatt is an architects’ testing ground for a wide variety of building products and surfaces and the Sto team offer technical and creative support for architectural projects all around the world.
