Development in Interdependence,
with Farrokh Derakhshani and Mohsen Mostafavi
|Director(s)||Victor & Simon|
In May 2019, as part of LUMA Days #3, a forum of art and ideas, entitled Together, a Declaration of Interdependence, we invited local and international experts, scientists, artists, thinkers, and activists to converge with the general public to share ideas and experiences around topical issues.
At a time of global transformation, and despite the capacity to instantly mobilize the individual, the concepts of « living together » and « working together » often seem out of reach. Are they just utopian ideals? The third edition of LUMA Days invites us to explore new concepts of interdependence in many forms.
For this occasion, LUMA Arles gathered around a conversation Farrokh Derakhshani, Director of the Aga Khan Award for Architecture and Mohsen Mostafavi, Alexander and Victoria Wiley Professor of Design of Harvard Graduate School of Design. Both specialists in architecture and urban planning, they question their disciplines through the prism of Interdependence. Is it possible to think about architecture without this notion? How to conceive Interdependence through material constructions? The two architects give us their point of view.
