Lecture Cristina Díaz Moreno & Efrén Gª Grinda | MACARONIC

The lecture will verse about new language constructs in architecture and a visit to AMID.cero9 recent projects developed within the framework of our unprecedented global context, where every type of cultural material triggers a wild multiplicity of connections with other materials, things and situations, from people to machines to insignificant, abstract entities. So that the lecture will argue that the overall congruence, origin, connotations and meanings of these connections are no longer relevant to the way these materials are connected and what counts now is the universal instant access to this infinite ocean of information.

amid.cero9 cultivates a post-digital, afterpop approach to the contemporary notion of space that enlists sociology, technology, media, politics and representation in projects ranging from architecture (Cherry Blossom Pavilion in Jerte Valley, Spain, shown at the 12th Biennale di Venezia, Giner de los Ríos Foundation in Madrid, Diagonal80 Industrial Pavillion in Madrid) to design (ESA Pavillion), ecosystemic studies (The Magic Mountain in Ames, We as a plague in Rome, TRP in Venice) and hybrid urban projects (Aijalaranta in Jyväskylä, or Hhouse in Balearic Islands).

Cristina Díaz Moreno & Efren Gª Grinda are both architects and founders of amid.cero9. They are Diploma Unit Masters at the A.A. School, London (2009-), Directors of an Option Studio at the GSD, Harvard University (2015-), and Visiting Professors and Unit Directors at SAC Städelschule Architectural Class, Frankfurt (2016-).

Previously they taught at the Institut für Kunst und Architektur Akademie der bildenden Künste in Vienna.

Lecture François Roche | s/he would rather do FICTION MAKer”
Flash back 1993-2050

Experimental architecture has shifted toward a new corpus of instrumentations, made out of tools, computation mechanization, but also and simultaneously out of fictions and lines of subjectivity, synchronous with our symptoms of fears and great escapes in the “here and now”.

The purpose of this 1993-2050 flashback lecture is to explore, in the pursuit of the show “s/he would rather do FICTION MAKer” from 2016, attitudes that manifest a correlation, a co-dependency with the forms they underpin through their conflicts and reciprocities.

It is to discover a post-digital, post-human, post-activist, post-democratic, post-feminist world, …  a queer, androgynous, carnal, disturbing, disenchanted, pornographic, transient, transactional world, ... where scenarios, mechanisms, misunderstandings, psychological and physiological fragments are what make up walls and ceilings, cellars and attics, … schizoid and paranoid, between the lines of operative and critical fictions …

François Roche founded the polymorphous architecture organization ‘New-Territories’ in 1993. Since then it has embraced different labels, names, strategies and purposes. ‘New-Territories’ is fronted by the androgynous avatar, trans-gender avatar, _S/he_, who authorized François Roche to write, talk and teach on his/her behalf, as a PS / personal secretary, an Ariadne’s wire of this ectoplasmic system and paranoiac mind. New-Territories seek to articulate the real and/or fictional geographic situations and narrative structures that can transform them, with technology, robotic and human natures, physiological and psychological.
François Roche´s work was exhibited among other places at Pompidou Center, SF Moma, Tate Modern, Barbican London, CCA Montreal and was selected 8 times at Venice Biennial, Chicago Biennial (2015), Istanbul  Biennial (2016).
Among the teaching positions held by him-her P.S. F Roche, New-Territories has been guest professor, over the last decade, in London, Vienna, Barcelona, Los Angeles, Paris, in New-York from 2006 to 2013 at Columbia University, and this last four years at RMIT, Melbourne.
‘’S/he’’ got in 2017 her-his first position in Vienna at ‘The Academy of Fine Arts’.
