The CCA presents Toolkit for Today 2014, a summer seminar held as part of the TD Bank Group-CCA Collection Research Grants program. This year the seminar aims to address questions related to contemporary architecture, showing how projects enrich and diverge from each other and how their differences are born of unusual perspectives and new ways of articulating architectural problems. These concepts form theoretical constellations that correspond to different ways of conceiving an architectural project. Some of them are more current than others, and more likely to open up new perspectives.
Guest speaker Professor Jacques Lucan presents four lectures: Materials and atmospheres, Towards an organic and texturic architecture, Piranesi as the key to understanding the contemporary city, and Neutrality and “landscape-like architecture.”
