Plans, Metres

AKSB 903, Beirut campus

The Department of Architecture and Interior Design is hosting a lecture titled: “Plans, Metres” by Prof. Johan Celsing.

The lecture presents Dwellings, Cultural and Ritual Buildings. It will discuss the development of the designs where focus is on the drawings, large scale models, and the reflective process of interchange in functional and formal considerations. The lecture will also comment on the inspiring proximity between the ordering of plans to the metrical rules that used to structure lyrical works. It will touch on issues such as Decorum, on precedents such as Alberti, Loos, Tessenow, writers WH Auden and others.
