Odyssey Works Book Launch

Once or twice a year, the team Odyssey Works chooses one participant to undergo a transformation, to embark on an Odyssey. Interwoven into the participant's life, the Odyssey can contain art, architecture, and design objects, friends and family, or a group of complete strangers.

Participants have been buried alive, kidnapped by people in pink onesies, and even in the case of one participant--novelist Rick Moody--found himself in Canada not knowing what he was doing there until he discovered a cello concert in a field playing just for him. Some Odysseys are short. Some go on for months.

The second chapter of the series in Rome, at Casa dell’Architettura, with MAIO from Barcelona and Point Supreme from Athens.

Postgraduate Master in Curatorship of Architecture and Design

The role of the Curator requires a comprehensive and multifaceted training that allows them to move in different contexts and platforms. The contemporary Curator investigates and identifies relevant issues and their relationships to, then, launch through exhibitions a narrative capable of catching the audience’s interest. A Curator’s work, therefore, encourages reflection and promotes new ways of perceiving and understanding architecture and design. The Master in Curatorship of Architecture and Design at IUAV (Venice, Italy) aims to train professionals capable of developing curatorial projects with a solid foundation in theory and critical thinking, coupled with a strong knowledge of strategies in exhibition making.

In her lifetime, Pritzker prize-winning architect, fashion designer and artist Zaha Hadid (31 October 1950 – 31 March 2016) became one of the most recognizable faces of our field. Revered and denounced with equal aplomb for the sensuous curved forms for which she was known, Hadid rose to prominence not solely through parametricism but by designing spaces to occupy geometries in new ways. Despite her tragically early death in March of 2016, the projects now being completed by her office without their original lead designer continue to push boundaries both creative and technological, while the fearless media presence she cultivated in recent decades has cemented her place in society as a woman who needs just one name: Zaha.

Founded in 1995 by architects Kazuyo Sejima (born 29 October 1956) and Ryue Nishizawa (born 7 February 1966), SANAA is world-renowned for its white, light buildings grounded in the architects’ Japanese cultural origins. Despite the white exteriors, their architecture is far from modernist; the constant incorporation of ambiguity and doubt in SANAA’s buildings is refreshing and playful, taking the reflective properties of glass and brightness of white to a new level.
