co+labo radović aSAUD 2O2O special lecture 1: Matyas Gutai, Loughborough University
Matyas Gutai, a lecturer at the the University of Loughborough, School of Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering, who hold PhD from University of Tokyo will deliver a short lecture series, Masterclass within aSAUD 2O2O, which focuses at three of his favourite themes in his own research and practice. He explains how "the lectures take a journey starting from the idea of Trans-structures, an emerging new concept of adaptive buildings that achieve permanence and stability through structural responses. The name Trans-structures come from the fact that such structures are always in transition instead of definitive stable states. We explore two types of Trans-structures: buildings with embedded material responses (change of environment triggers a change in material) and hybrid structures such as Water Houses. In our last part of our series we will take a visionary perspective and explore how such structures can change the course of architecture and urbanism in the future." Matyas will deliver his lectures on Fridays 30 October, 6 and 13 November 2020, and take part in discussions with students.
