Alejandro Zaera-Polo: Recent cosmologies (March 24, 2015)

Alejandro Zaera-Polo begins by describing his current research with Maider Llaguno into airflow around buildings as part of a larger theoretical interest in building interpretations of the world. He discusses recent projects concerned with air, including the Shenzen Super City plan, and the office tower in Vienna for Austro Control. Projects focusing on the earth or the ground include the (CEAR) sailing center in Santander, and two buildings for Weifang University. He discusses Landscape Preservation Camouflage, a project on tourism developed for the Greek pavilion at the 2014 Venice Biennale. Zaera-Polo concludes with “earth”-focused projects that engage rural sites: a large house in Sotogrande, and a cultural center in Northwest Spain.
