Design, Memória e Comportamento na Era Digital

15/11 - Teatro Guararapes (Inglês » Português)


Na primeira parte da apresentação serão abordados tópicos referentes ao universo digital e aos novos modos de vida, que juntos formam as bases para se analisar os rumos da arquitetura, do design nos tempos atuais. Serão abordados temas como informatização do cotidiano, interatividade, cibercultura, cultura ciborgue e novas subjetividades. Na segunda parte da apresentação serão apresentados projetos do Estudio Guto Requena, que ajudam a ilustrar os temas discutidos, com foco nos projetos onde a narrativa poética e o processo são o foco principal, e não o seu resultado formal. Projetos em que as novas tecnologias de informação e comunicação amparam questões relativas à memória, em projetos de arquitetura de interiores, instalações interativas e objetos.
