The exhibition “The Living City: Park Systems from Lausanne to Los Angeles” in Archizoom displays works that come from archival collections and are assembled with the intention to open and influence discussion about landscape issues still of great importance. Exhibitions about historical architecture and surviving documents that represent or interpret those works speak to an essential part of the architectural consciousness. Indeed most architects have an internal archive of buildings seen or experienced that are fundamental to their understanding of what a building is for them.

Speakers:
Salvatore Aprea (Director, ACM Archive EPFL)
Gian Piero de Bellis (Founder of World Wide Wisdom Research Center and Archive, St. Imier)
Denise Bertschi (Doctoral Researcher, EPFL-lapis)
