Professor Federica Goffi will be delivering the keynote Lecture at the 3rd Marco Frascari Symposium, to be held at the Washington Alexandria Architecture Center, hosted by Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University from April 21-22. and sponsored by the Northern Virginia AIA. The symposium, titled “Ceilings and Dreams: The Architecture of Levity: is the third in the symposium series, with the inaugural event held at our own Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism, where Marco had been Chair of the School.
Dr. Goffi’s lecture – titled “Carlo Scarpa and Ceiling Design: The Querini Stampalia In Venice” will address Carlo Scarpa’s way of working within existing edifices through ambiguous poetic conversions in terms of material imagination and the condition of listening in dialogue with craftsmanship. In addition the talk will consider Luigi Nono’s La Fabbrica Illuminata 1964, a steel factory in Genoa, where Nono recorded live sounds of the metallurgic production to which workers were exposed, to amplify the conditions of work exploitation in industrial factories.
