Time and place: Wednesday October 10 at 8-10 in lecture hall K2.
Title: "Thinking inside the box from outside!"
Guest lecturer: Milad Hossainzadeh, Ba(h) Dip.M.Arch
Talk: What happens to an idea when approached from different angles and different cultural views? Is there a limit on how radical an idea can be? What then are the social, cultural, behavioral, economical, political, technical and ecological consequences?
This lecture will explore how lateral thinking can highlight the exception in an idea, and expand our perception of bringing playfulness into a concept. In order to push forward, we will expose the consequences and create temporary realities where we allow for a critical discussion to take place.
