Advance Notice: Lecture by Anne Lacaton
November 21 @ 18:00 HIL E4
Anne Lacaton (*1955), currently a partner in the architecture firm Lacaton&Vassal, Paris, France, and Associate Professor of Architecture and Design of ETH. Lacaton is an internationally acclaimed architect. Her designs and constructions make a clear statement in support of the human rather than the iconic. She shows great consideration for the concerns of the people involved, such as residents in areas undergoing redevelopment. Her design concepts aim to facilitate user participation. This applies to residential buildings just as much as to schools or museums. Through the appointment of Anne Lacaton, the Department of Architecture at ETH Zurich is gaining an academically outstanding teacher with socio-political integrity and a visionary approach to architecture.
