Architecture of displacement
Meeting with Yasmine Abbas
Yasmine will discuss contemporary mobilities, our immersion in fluid spaces, world inhabited by strange creatures, hybrids, humans, and non-humans and the neo-nomads that we have become. Needs of memorable experience and anchoring in a world that is always in flux calls for particular architecture and architectural processes that take into account mobile sensory parameters.
Yasmine Abbas is a hybrid, neo-nomad and architect exploring mobilities, physical, mental and digital, art and design processes. Graduated with a master of science from MIT and a Doctor of Design from Harvard Graduate School of Design, she is today Chair of Design Management at Paris College of Art and consultant in urban strategic design. She is also coordinator of the "Art and Culture in the Digital Turn" area within the Advanced Master DESIGN by DATA run by École des Ponts Paris Tech and directed by Francesco Cingolani.
