KADK, The School of Architecture, and the Copenhagen Architecture Festival invites you to the CAF x KADK lecture series presented by prominent contemporary architects, filmmakers, and artists from a variety of generations and continents. The presenters will engage with problems concerning architecture and urbanization, each in their own way, influencing the architecture profession and the arts in 2019. 

Join us for these lectures to learn more about what is happening in the field of architecture around the world and participate in discussions about how international agendas and approaches relate to the situation in Denmark. All lectures are free – just show up!

Context matters - meet the Mexican architect Tatiana Bilbao
Mexican architect Tatiana Bilbao will lecture on her diverse practice. Renowned for her interpretations of traditional Mexican architecture, Bilbao is highly concerned with social sustainability and the relationship between architecture and its surrounding landscapes. Well attuned to the art of building for ordinary people, she believes that architecture forms a framework for society and must, therefore, be accessible and in dialogue with its context.

Bilbao’s lecture will be followed by a discussion with Karsten Gori, co-owner of the design studio LETH & GORI and teacher at the KADK. Gori will welcome Bilbao and relate her work to local projects of the school and his own office.

In addition to this lecture, Bilbao has curated a separate film programme for the CAFx and her studio’s work will be exhibited at Louisiana this autumn.
