2018 South Regional Conference

Space Event & Movement

The Art Institute of Miami International University building entrance

Miami International University of Art and Design

Miami, Florida

Space Event & Movement: The Manhattan Transcripts, in which Swiss-French architect Bernard Tschumi, transcribed aspects normally removed from conventional architectural representation, like the complex relationship between spaces and their use. He believed that there was no architecture without events, actions or activity; where architecture must originate from ideas and concepts before becoming form, and cannot be dissociated from the events and movements of the living beings that inhabit it.
