We regret to inform you that due to unforeseen circumstances we will need to cancel this talk.

Please accept our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience that may have been caused as result of the talk's cancellation.

The fifth and last talk of the series 'Project and Destiny: Reflections on design and architecture in Italy today'.

Weaving Architecture summarises a way of thinking stemming from Benedetta Tagliabue and EMBT’s experimental work through the years, starting with the wicker Spanish Pavilion of Expo 2010 Shanghai. Progressing now in Clichy-sous-Bois and Montfermeil (in the outskirts of Paris) with the design of a metro station (part of the Grand Paris Express), a marketplace, an urban renewal, which will be built with fibers, a delicate material resistant through time and climate.
Weaving Architecture deals with the concept of weaving at different scales: weaving the city through its metro, weaving activities of people in the public space, weaving the structure of the canopy to dress it with fiber fabrics.

Benedetta Tagliabue, architect, the director of the international architecture firm Miralles Tagliabue EMBT, founded in 1994 in collaboration with Enric Miralles, based in Barcelona and, since 2010, in Shanghai. Among her most notable projects built are the Edinburgh Parliament, Diagonal Mar Park, the Santa Caterina market in Barcelona, Campus Universitario de Vigo, and the Spanish Pavilion at the 2010 Shanghai World Expo, which was awarded the prestigious RIBA International “Best International Building of 2011” award. Current studio projects include the Business School of Fudan University in Shanghai, office towers in Xiamen and Taichung, public spaces of HafenCity in Hamburg Germany, the metro station Clichy-Montfermeil in Paris, France (first prize in competition) and the metro central station in Naples, Italy. In the teaching field, she has also been a visiting professor at Harvard University, Columbia University and Barcelona ETSAB, lecturing regularly at architecture forums and universities, and is part of jurors around the world, e.g. the Princesa de Asturias awards and the Pritzker Prize. Her work received the RIBA Stirling Prize in 2005, the National Spanish Prize in 2006, the Catalan National prize in 2002, City of Barcelona prize in 2005 and 2009, FAD prizes in 2000, 2003 and 2007.
