Architecture may react to a context that is increasingly driven by the massive impact of social, political, economic, and ecological factors, attempting to maintain a singular sense of cohesion. The contradictory has become the contemporary program of our discipline. A strategic organization of space is one that mixes elements, value systems, and action logic. It opens up a combination of essential incoherencies. The target of strategic architecture is to manage the coexistence of conflicting values.

Piet Eckert was born in 1968 in Mumbai (Bombay). Following his studies at the Columbia Graduate School of Architecture in New York and the ETH Zurich (Diploma 1994), he collaborated with OMA in Rotterdam from 1995 to 1997. In 2001 Piet Eckert established E2A with his brother Wim Eckert. From 2009 to 2011, Piet Eckert was a visiting Professor for Architecture and Sustainable Building at the HCU HafenCity University of Hamburg. Since 2014, Piet Eckert is a guest professor at the USI – Università dell Svizzera Italiana at Mendrisio.

This event is free and open to the public.
