Tues 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Felipe Mujica will present his most recent publication Jugador como pelota, pelota como cancha, a homage to architect Manuel Casanueva (1943–2014), who was a teacher at the School of Architecture of the Catholic University of Valparaíso. Mujica will discuss the importance of the School which until recently has had very little visibility, as well as the Torneos [Tournaments] developed by Casanueva and his students between 1974 to 1992. The Torneos were series of experimental, ludic and collective exercises in which the concept and structure of each “game”—field, teams, rules, props—were utilized to produce different kinds of corporal and spatial interactions that emphasized collectivity, chance, and improvisation.
