Lucía Cano Pintos, architect from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid was educated in an architectural environment and initiated her architectural practice work with his father, the great Spanish master Julio Cano Lasso. She was a member of the renowned architecture office Cano Lasso Studio.
José Selgas Rubio, architect from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid worked with Francesco Venezia in Naples and was awarded Rome Prize at the Spain Academy of Fine Arts in Rome afterwards.
Together they founded Selgas-Cano, an award-winning architecture office based in Madrid. Their broad architectural work stretches across a varied range of types and scales throughout the world. Moreover, their work has been exhibited, among others, at the Venice Biennale of Architecture, the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humelbæk, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo, MoMA and the Guggenheim in New York.
We are thrilled to announce this unique international lecture series comprising ground-breaking architectural approaches where interior spatial design conducts an outstanding experience of the phenomenon of Nature. The lecture series will enrich our understanding of biophilic architectural design, a biological understanding of architecture, and stimulate the debate and interest in Nature-connected architectural interior design.
The lectures will be introduced and/or moderated by Professors Kirsten Marie Raahauge and Peter Thule Kristensen, and Postdoc Carmen García Sánchez. Organized by Carmen García Sánchez as part of her individual research project Nature-In, the research unit Center for Interior Studies, and the Master programme Spatial Design at the Institute of Architecture and Design, the lecture series combines contemporary design practice with scientific perspectives. The program aligns with the UIA2023CPH World Congress which will be hosted in Copenhagen in July 2023.
All students, architects, and designers – and those interested in architectural design – are invited.
José Selgas Spanish and Lucía Cano (Selgas-Cano) have an original and distinctive approach to architecture where the connection to nature takes place through the dissolution of a translucent or transparent enclosure creating varying relationships and interactions with daylight. Their work is refreshing, full of creativity and youth, and on the other hand, displays a strong commitment to the user. Their interiors feature vibrant atmospheres where elegant combinations of colours and lightweight structures lead users to imaginative experiences. Spatial flow is set between their diverse spaces, extending out, connecting either with winter gardens or the surrounding environment.
Their lecture is a unique opportunity to get to know their work through their own words, as they only present lectures on very exceptional occasions.
