Tecnoglass Lecture Series: “Embracing the Immesurable” / Sandra Barclay and Jean Pierre Crousse at the University of Miami School of Architecture
EMBRACING THE IMMEASURABLE
Sandra Barclay and Jean Pierre Crousse follow the traces of Alexander Von Humboldt, the first to realize, since the fall of pre-Columbian civilizations, that the section, and not the plan, is the only way to understand the Andes region. This journey from the barren landscapes of the desert coast through the steep Mountain range into the Amazon jungle helped them rethink their approach to architecture from its geography and understand the challenges of an impervious landscape from a design point of view.
Their transcontinental practice explores the bonds between landscape, climate, and architecture to challenge common notions about technology, usage, and well-being that can inform and be pertinent in a global context from their specific local conditions.
