In Practice organizes and supports conferences, lectures and exhibitions. Particularly, the "In Practice" conferences are articulated around a seminar for practising architects engaged in research and a lecture by architects unveiling one project through the lens of the process and the work documents. These lectures are followed by a conversation with a panel of critics, academics and peers.

LucAs Architecturebook #4 - Passion & Work

For LucAs—Architecturebook #4, text contribution
will explore two tracks.

PASSION. You are an actively practicing architect: which passion, which urgency drives your engagement in academics? You are a student : which passion, which urgency drives you through the demanding studios? From the exploration of unknown fields to the pragmatics of construction, from the generous sharing and the pleasure of inspiration, you are invited to formulate the causes and modalities of your engagement.
WORK. LucAs—Architecturebook #4 contains student and teacher’s work. Not only the beautiful final documents, but also the intriguing work documents that made the difference in the design process. You are invited to reflect on two documents: one work document and one final document. Stick close to the real documents, be descriptive and explorative.
