Maurice Harteveld versus Tom Avermaete – 18 September 8:45-10:30

Maurice Harteveld: ‘Design and People, Designers as People’
versus
Tom Avermaete: ‘Public Spaces, Then and Now’

Tom Avermaete and Maurice Harteveld both encourage the architect to take on a social relevant and cultural related position as safe guarders of the public domain. But what exactly can be the role of the architect in today’s society? Is there an alternative to the modernist position of relative autonomy? Both researchers will give their advice to the architectural profession.

Moderator: Hans Teerds
This confrontation lecture will take place in Room A from 8:45-10:30
