Predavanje Mladena Jadrića: Zvjezdani trenutak grada

Pozivamo vas na javno predavanje koje će u četvrtak, 15.12., održati austrijski arhitekt i profesor na TU Wien Mladen Jadrić. Predavanje ‘Zvjezdani trenutak grada’ održat će se u 18:30 u Velikoj predavaonici na Arhitektonskom fakultetu.

12. December 2022.

The lecture gives an overview of architectural projects that came about in both urban and rural contexts in the Europe and Far East. They are the product of two decades in which Mladen Jadric has taught and worked as an architect in Europe and Asia. In search of new impressions and tasks, he initiated numerous research projects with Chinese, Korean, and Japanese universities and was able to document the far-reaching changes taking place in those Asian urban and rural areas. The projects of his office, JADRIC ARCHITEKTUR, range from a macro- to micro-scale, and some have received international acclaim. Many Asian megacities are currently seeking answers to the imminent post-COVID 19 future and the age known as the Anthropocene. Because migration and increasing density in urban areas are likely to maintain their high pace in the next few decades despite their precarious effects on the environment, it is important to commit oneself to socially relevant architecture, especially in the fast vertically-growing Asian cities. Despite all the cultural differences and geographical distances between Europe and Asia, there is a lot for current and future urban designers to learn and share. The selected projects owe their success to the collaboration of large interdisciplinary and multinational planning teams.
