Seven "Π" words: the short architectural vocabulary by Professor Eugune Asse, Moscow School of Architecture.
6.30pm, Thursday 22 February, The Wash Houses.
There are several words, or categories, one architect uses more often in discussing architecture. Once I realized that most important words in my personal architectural vocabulary start with Russian letter П (Pe). In this lecture I will talk of the meaning in my life and practice of just seven words from my "П" dictionary, such as public, memory, simplicity, poetry, details, product and enlightenment.
