Temple Talks with Pier Vittorio Aureli 19/12

Pier Vittorio Aureli (w Martino Tattara in DOGMA)
The Room of One’s Own. A Short History of the ‘Private Room’

The room is perhaps the most obvious form of architecture, and yet it is the least investigated. It seems that the room has always been there, and that as dwellers, and then as architects, we have had no choice but to live in and design rooms. If the purpose of architecture is to make space then the room is the most direct architectural form that can result from such a claim. While architect Louis Kahn considered the room as the essential origin of architecture, writer Virginia Woolf argued that to have ‘a room of one’s own’ was for a woman of her time a challenge to the patriarchal logic of domestic space.

Temple Talks is a series of commissioned lectures jointly organized by La Loge and rAAk (Research Center for Architecture & the Arts at KU Leuven Association). Over the course of the academic year, artists and architects are invited to share a passionate and personal point of view contributing to an understanding of the ever complementary, complex, and sometimes misunderstood relationship between art and architecture. Through the experience of a diversity of guests and practices, the series aims to research the specificities of these distinct fields while building up a common ground of interests and languages.
