Sandra Barclay & Jean Pierre Crousse, "Transversal Grounds"


Friday, April 1, 2022, 12:30pm to 2:00pm


Harvard Graduate School of Design—Online

In Transversal Grounds, Sandra Barclay and Jean Pierre Crousse follow the traces of Alexander Von Humboldt, the scientist who realized that the section, and not the plan, is the only way to understand the Central Andes region. Their journey from the barren landscapes of the desert coast through the steep Mountain range into the Amazon jungle helped them rethink architecture challenges from geographical and cultural conditions. The projects done in the last years through this territorial section understand architecture as a sensitive way of adding meaning to the cultural construction of our environment.
