Ludic Architecture - IV International Encounter on Architectural Education, spaces and devices - FAUP

I must confess that I'm proud to announce that finally I'm organizing a large event about my main topic of interest: Ludic Architecture!
Indeed on 12 & 13 May 2017 I'll receive at the Faculty of Architecture of University of Porto several speakers that will present their creations, researches, creations, ideas about two main thematic blocks connecting Education and Architecture: the didactic devices and the educational spaces and activities. The devices, including toys, considered as artifacts used in the educational process in architecture. On the other hand, the consideration of the spaces and activities that frame the architectural education, as determinants to the success of learning processes in Architecture.
During two days, speakers from different professionals and academic areas, national and internationally, will address various topics of interest to architects, artists, educators and students, but also for professionals linked to the production and trade of toys and all that, somehow, are engaged into the field of education.

Save the date!

Early booking allows access to the full event at a reduced price and can be bought on the site of the event until 31.12.2016.
