Please join us for the lecture “Cities and Rivers” by Jesus Arcos, principal of  Aldayjover Arquitectura y Paisaje, Barcelona, Spain.

 

“Aldayjover architecture and landscape was founded in 1996 in an old seventeen century palace in the center of Barcelona, and expanded to Virginia (USA) in 2011. It is headed by three partners—Iñaki Alday, Margarita Jover, Jesus Arcos, and an associate director of landscape architecture Francisco Mesonero. aldayjover is a multidisciplinary research based practice, focused in innovation and in the specific character of the place. The work is particularly renowned by its leadership in a new approach to the relation between cities and rivers, in which natural dynamics as the flood become part of the public space, eliminating the effect of "catastrophe.” As quoted in: Alday, Iñaki, and Margarita Jover. 2018. Cities & rivers. aldayjover architecture and landscape.
