RUMOR 03.03

RUMOR 03 PAYS TRIBUTE TO LUIS M. MANSILLA
Rumor. School of Architecture. Princeton University.

"LUIS MORENO MANSILLA, 1959-2012. With great sadness we received the news last week that Luis Mansilla had died: without warning, in Barcelona on Ash Wednesday. He was 52 years old. Together with Emilio Tuñón, he formed the studio Mansilla + Tuñón, and the two partners taught at the School as Labatut Professors of Architecture from 2008-2010. Luis and Emilio were in Barcelona to present a book of the last writings of Enric Miralles, another talented architect who died too young. Mansilla + Tuñón enjoyed a growing international esteem, with significant prizes, major work under construction and important new commissions. Luis saw architecture as an unfolding conversation, at once lodged deep in the history of the discipline and at the same time always searching for new thoughts and fresh ideas. This way of thinking permeated his long and fruitful collaboration with Emilio and the work of their studio, but it was also fundamental to their teaching at the School and it extended to his wide circle of friends. Luis was dedicated to his work but he always made time for friends and for his family: his wife, the talented painter Carmen Pinart, and their two daughters Luz and Maria. We will remember him for his generosity, his intelligence and his gentle passion for the art of architecture"  soa.princeton.edu

SYMMETRIES IN LISBON 2012

Symmetries Architecture Workshop Summer 2012 Lisbon will stage collaboration between Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura de Madrid and ISCET Lisboa Architecture Faculty. The workshop will focus upon one of the lesser-known historic treasures in Lisbon: the roman Baixa Lisboa catacombs (S.IaC), unknown until the XVIIIth Century and rarely visited. These catacombs remain a latent trace ready to be unveiled, critically considered in cultural, urban and touristic terms. The workshop will deal with these possibilities and will offer creative interpretations of the complex overlapping of this ruin and Lisbon’s urban structure. lisbon.symmetries.es
