Wissenschaftsakademie tonite!

Einladung zum dritten Seminar des Studiengangs Architekturtheorie an der
Wissenschaftsakademie Berlin

Samstag, 26. August, 20 Uhr c.t.:
Howl's Moving Architecture

Using scenes from the film as illustration, Momus looks at the way
Miyazaki's animation "Howl's Moving Castle" sets retro-futurist
architectural invention against a backdrop of Mitteleuropa as imagined by
the Japanese. He relates these themes to the circumstances of his own first
viewing of the film, at Tokyo's Roppongi Hills development, right after
seeing the experimental architecture show "Archilab". He also thinks about
the representation of Europe in Tokyo's architectural landscape, and relates
the mutability seen both in "Howl's Moving Castle" and Tokyo itself to Tom
Wolfe and Robert Venturi's ideas about "electrographic architecture".

Das Seminar wird in englischer Sprache gehalten werden.
