Järgmine lektor meie arhitektuuriteaduskonna avatud loengute sarjas on Tania Tovar Torres, kes astub Kanuti Gildi SAALi (Pikk 20, Tallinn) lavale 5. aprillil kell 18.00, et rääkida oma uuest dokumentaalprojektist, mis uurib arhitektuuri säilitamise alternatiivseid viise.

Mis juhtub, kui hoonet enam olemas ei ole? Tovar Torrese projekt “Elu pärast aega” uurib hoone lõppemist ja järelelu, ning seda, kas arhitektuur võiks säilida mitte objekti ehk ehitisena, vaid dokumentatsiooni ehk loona. Uurides ehitiste ajalugu pärast nende kadumist, räägib Tovar Torres oma loengus Jeruusalemma iidsest Saalomoni templist ja selle rohketest koopiatest, Gordon Matta-Clarki Office Baroque’i ja Chinatownis toimunud röövimisjuhtumi vahelistest seostest, ning 1985. aasta Mexico City maavärinast, võrreldes juriidilist teksti maavärina läbi teinud hoonete reaalse olukorraga.

Tania Tovar Torres on arhitekt, kirjanik ja kuraator, kelle huvi keskmes on arhitektuuri ning ehitatud keskkonnaga seotud lood. Torres on Mexico Citys asuva arhitektuursete uurimisprojektidele mõeldud projektiruumi Proyector asutaja, direktor ning peakuraator ning Saksamaa Säästva arengu koostööameti konsultant Mehhikos. Varem on ta töötanud Montrealis Kanada arhitektuurikeskuses, New Yorgis Arthur Rossi nimelises arhitektuurigaleriis ning Mexico Citys Teaduse ja Kunsti Ülikooli muuseumis. Tema uurimusi on kajastanud ajakirjad Arquine (Mehhiko), MAS Context (USA), ARQ (Tšiili), CCA (Kanada) ja UIC (Hispaania). Torres õppis Mehhiko ülikoolis ja Stuttgarti disainiülikoolis Saksamaal ning omandas magistrikraadi kriitilises, kuratoorses ja kontseptuaalses arhitektuuripraktikas New Yorgis Columbia ülikoolis.

Loeng toimub koostöös Eesti Arhitektuurimuuseumiga ja on osa Future Architecture programmist. Tegu on innovatsiooni ning eksperimenteerimist edendava programmiga, mis tutvustab arhitektuuri ja Euroopa linnu lähitulevikus kujundama hakkavat noort põlvkonda.

Avatud Loengute sarja raames jõuavad Tallinnasse põnevad arhitektid ja linnaplaneerijaid - nii teoreetikuid kui praktikuid - kõikjalt üle maailma. Kuulama on oodatud kõikide Eesti koolide tudengid – olgu siis arhitektuuri, urbanistika, sisearhitektuuri, disaini või vabade kunstide valdkonnast; samuti juba tegutsevad professionaalid, õppejõud ning lihtsalt arhitektuuri- ja ruumihuvilised – samuti kõik, kes kaaluvad arhitektuuri õppima asumist. Avatud loengud on alati tasuta ja inglise keeles.

EKA arhitektuuri ja linnaplaneerimise osakond on arhitektuuri avatud loenguid korraldanud 2012. aastast alates – igal õppeaastal astub Tallinnas erialase publiku ette kümmekond valdkonna omanäolist praktikut ja hinnatud teoreetikut. Avatud loengute sarja kureerivad Sille Pihlak ja Siim Tuksam.

/// IN ENGLISH:

The next lecturer of the Open Lecture Series this spring semester will be Tania Tovar Torres, stepping on the stage of Kanuti Gildi SAAL (Pikk 20, Tallinn) on 5th of April at 6 pm to talk about ‘In Articulo Mortis’, her latest documentary and literary project exploring alternative ways of architectural preservation.

What happens when a building ceases to exist? ‘Life after time’ makes an argument around the demise and afterlife of a building, and the possibility of architecture no longer surviving as an object –building– but rather as a document, a story. By exploring the histories of buildings after their demise, the lecture narrates the divine tale of ancient Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem and its many replicas in time; the relation between Gordon Matta-Clark’s Office Baroque and a robbery in Chinatown; and the comparison of a legal transcript with reality of an apartment in the Tlatelolco Housing Unit after the Earthquake of 1985 in Mexico City; Linking them to make a case for physical and ideological transformations, documentary reinterpretations and legal reproductions and how they can reconstruct physical space, unveil the multilayered conflicts of the archival and politics of the official in conjunction with popular history to make visible the relativity and fragility of architecture’s weight and materiality before the light but powerful pages of history and its preservation.

Tania Tovar Torres is an architect, writer and curator with an interest for narratives where architecture and the built environment stand as main character. She is founder of Proyector, a curatorial platform and exhibition space based in Mexico City devoted to the promotion of architecture research projects. Tania is currently Director and Chief Curator of Proyector, as well as a consultant for the German Cooperation Agency for Sustainable Development in Mexico. Previously she has worked at the Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montreal, the Arthur Ross Architecture Gallery in New York, the University Museum of Science and Art and the National Council for Educational Development in Mexico City. Her research and work has been published in Arquine (MEX), MAS Context (USA) and ARQ (CHL) Magazines, the CCA (CAN) and the UIC (ESP). Tania graduated as an architect from the National Autonomous University of Mexico, studied at the Stuttgart State Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Germany, and holds a Masters in Critical, Curatorial and Conceptual Practices in Architecture from the Columbia Graduate School of Architecture Planning and Preservation in New York.

Lecture is organised in collaboration with the Museum of Estonian Architecture. It is part of the Future Architecture program which introduces and celebrates innovation, experimentation and the ideas of a generation that will design the architecture and build Europe’s cities in the years to come.

The Open Lecture Series brings to Tallinn a number of exciting architects, urban planners, academics from across the world. All Open Lectures are free of charge, in English, take place every fortnight, and are open to everyone – for both students and professionals of the field, general audience and students considering architecture for their further studies.

The architecture and urban planning department of the Estonian Academy of Arts has been curating the Open Lectures on Architecture series since 2012 – each year, a dozen architects, urbanists, both practicing as well as academics, introduce their work and field of research to the audience in Tallinn. All lectures are in English, free and open to all interested, drawing an audience of students as well as professionals and academics from the fields of architecture, design, engineering but also fine arts. The series is funded by the Estonian Cultural Endowment.
