The Berlage Archive: Stefano Boeri (2001)

ArchDaily has teamed up with the The Berlage to provide exclusive access to their newly digitized archive of lectures. The Berlage is a postgraduate international institute where some of the world’s most renowned architects, thinkers, designers, photographers and other professionals come to share, exchange and critically reflect upon their ideas. Over the last 23 years, The Berlage has built up an extensive archive of seminal lectures. Thanks to this partnership we can now share them with you. ArchDaily is committed to providing inspiration and knowledge to architects all over the world, so please look forward to monthly publications of these lectures during the coming year.

What is Europe's new role in a globalized, post-terrorist world? In this lecture from 2001, Italian architect Stefano Boeri meditates on the intersection of socialism, urbanism and globalization in a world still reeling from the attacks on September 11th, which had occurred just months prior. "Multiplicity," he explains, is about creating an opportunity to discuss the myriad of components affecting the all-encompassing world of architecture. Boeri paints his ideas in broad strokes, punctuating with specific examples of social uprising as catalysts for movements within architecture.

"Europe cannot be read as geographical or geopolitical environment" says Boeri, "it has a history of mobile borders." In a world turned upside down by a new culture of terrorism, Boeri delves into the traveling museum exhibition as a worldwide vehicle for research, discussion and progress. Referencing his research on urban planning in "Mutations" with Rem Koolhaas, Boeri places architecture on the leading edge of societal progress, as typified in his later project Bosco Verticale in Milan.
