On the 24th of February 2022 , in Mons, architect Ángel Borrego Cubero gave a lecture addressed to the students of the Faculté d’Architecture et d’Urbanisme de l’Université de Mons, of the Service de Génie Architectural et Urbain de la Faculté Polytechnique and of the École Supérieure des Arts-Arts2.
Alongside the lecture, there were also several screenings of “The Competition”, the documentary film on competitions of architecture made by Borrego.
The lecture and the screenings, were part of “Jeudi Archi“, an event organised by the Université de Mons, l’Ordre des Architectes de la Province de Hainaut and Plaza Arthouse de Mons.
Confinement must give us something positive: We have been able to finish editing and translating to English one more chapter in the series dedicated to Professor Justo Isasi’s classes. “Telling stories with lines” is the third drawn lesson from the six that Professor Justo Isasi gave in the spring of 2016 at ETSAM (Higher Technical School of Architecture in Madrid) and covers representations from Karl Friedrich Schinkel, Augustus Pugin to Le Corbusier and Rem Koolhaas. Thanks to the collaboration with Plataforma Arquitectura and Archdaily, these wonderful classes can be enjoyed beyond the ETSAM classrooms. This is a non-profit project lead by Ángel Borrego Cubero.
