The Amsterdam Academy of Architecture has invited Russian artist and architect Alexander Brodsky to be Artist in Residence for the academic year 2018-2019. During this afternoon 1lectures on Friday 1 March 2019, Brodsky will reflect on the Winter School, in relation to his other work.
Brodsky graduated from the Moscow Institute of Architecture in 1978 before first receiving international acclaim in the 1980s with his utopian etchings, and was a key member of the after so-called Paper Architects. During the Winter School 2019, a two-week research and design program in January, all three disciplines of architecture, urbanism and landscape architecture joined forces, represented by first and second year students.
City of Clay
Together with the students, Brodsky took a following step in a series which he is engaged in: the expression of imagination and working with clay. Thereby, each student made a fragment of an imaginary city build up from materialized fragments of their individual memories. Together, they made a whole new imaginary. The city of clay was built up in the courtyard of the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture, and is still visible there until this lecture (with a process of decay by nature).
