Nils Erik Wickberg Lectures 2020: History and Wellbeing. Sound foundations for architecture

30 lokakuun, 2020

Since Antiquity, good life and wellbeing have aroused numerous intellectual writings, and during the recent decades, also a new flower in the garden of scholarships. Wellbeing, reflected in design, architectural texts and pamphlets during the past centuries, opens new windows and doors to reconsider the very foundations of architecture as an aesthetic, social and technological phenomenon. The lectures of the seminar offer a glance to the scope and role of wellbeing in the history of architecture, in the times past, and our present and future, inextricably rooted in the history.
