Carnicero Presents at Days of Oris Conference
Iñaqui Carnicero, visiting assistant professor of architecture, was an invited presenter at the Days of Oris conference held in Dubrovnik, Croatia, in late April. Started in 2001, the Days of Oris symposium is an international architecture symposium organized by Arhitekst Publishing Company and Oris magazine.
Carnicero delivered a presentation titled "Second Hand Spaces" that used Rome as an example of achieving sustainable building through the reuse of space, materials, and structures.
The presentation's abstract says, "Some of the most important spaces in [Rome], such as the old temples and monuments, were reused in medieval times, frequently with humble programs far away from the sublime purposes for which they were originally erected. In other cases, the traces of destroyed ancient buildings have remained as the footprint of new construction. This enticing dialogue between the past and the present is only possible when design provides a bridge of connection."
Other speakers at the 2014 event included Odile Decq of France; Robert Dragogna, Boris Ljubicic, and Ester Miletic of Croatia; Igor Grozdanić and Sanja Galic Grozdanić of Bosnia and Herzegovina; and Peter Stutchbury of Australia.
Carnicero also presented a talk in late March at a conference titled "The Evolution of Pedagogy: Architecture in Spain" held at the School of Architecture at San Juan University in Puerto Rico.
