Fuensanta Nieto—a founding partner of Nieto Sobejano Arquitectos, with offices in Madrid and Berlin, and a professor at the Universidad Europea de Madrid—will deliver the annual Coral Courts Lecture, titled Art, City, Landscape, as part of the Sam Fox School’s Public Lecture Series.
Our works are conceived independently, at different times. They are the result of varying conditions, places, and programs: at first glance one is undoubtedly more attentive to what sets them apart than to what may unite them. Only when grouped together, like pieces of an imaginary puzzle, do they seem to reveal what unconsciously connects them: fragmentary processes that suggest perhaps fictitious, but not unreal, orders. And yet, precisely because architecture is always the result of an interpretation of multiple and apparently unconnected circumstances that end up resembling one another, the projects are a reflection of one another, like an unforeseen result of an endless play of mirrors. The lecture will present the ideas, projects, and works as a dialogue between art, city, and landscape.
