Del Campo Lectures at the Naturhistorisches Museum in Vienna, Austria
Associate Professor Matias del Campo has been invited by the Naturhistorisches Museum in Vienna, Austria, to lecture about the architectural concepts of his firm SPAN, which he runs together with Assistant Professor of Practice Sandra Manninger. The lecture will take place on Wednesday, December 21, 2016 and focuses on new insights gained during their fellowship at CERN, the world’s leading research facility for particle physics in Geneva, Switzerland.
Matias del Campo is a registered architect and designer. His obsessive explorations of contemporary moods are fueled by the opulent repertoire of materialization protocols in nature, cutting-edge technologies and philosophical inquiry, together forming a comprehensive design ecology. In 2003 he co-founded the architectural practice SPAN in Vienna, together with Sandra Manninger.
SPAN’s work was featured at the 2012 Venice Architecture Biennale, at ArchiLab 2013 at the FRAC Centre, Orléans, France, the 2008 and 2010 Architecture Biennale in Beijing, and in the 2011 solo show ‘Formations’ at the Museum of Applied Arts (MAK) in Vienna. Most recently Matias del Campo was awarded the Accelerate@CERN fellowship, served as a Technical Chair of the ACADIA Conference and guest edited an edition of AD, Architectural Design published by Wiley in London, UK.
