Teaching/Practice is out

Published to coincide with the Venice Biennale, Teaching/Practice takes the form of an interview on the interplay between these two fundamental aspects of his practice, conducted by Irina Davidovici, an architect and senior research assistant at ETH Zurich’s Institute for the History and Theory of Architecture. The book also offers five recent essays by Sergison, in which he explores some of the central issues his work addresses. In “A teaching position,” he questions the kind of skills students ought to have when graduating from architecture school. In “Twenty-one lessons learnt,” he discusses what he has learnt over two decades as an architect in practice and a teacher of architecture. “Reflections on the European city” explores an urban architecture of uniformity for a society of diversity, while “Brutalism remembered” deals with the legacy of Brutalism, and “Re-use” suggests an approach to an urban heritage which has been shaped by the past.
