Liernur: "The period 1920-1920 left as an inheritance the idea that it was no longer necessary to adjective to architecture. Architecture is modern"
As part of the 1st chapter of Epic: Feats of Argentine Design, the architects Cecilia Durán and Francisco Liernur discuss about modern architecture: housing and the city in the work of Wladimiro Acosta, Delfina Gálvez Bunge and Amancio Williams and the Austral Group, the contribution of the period 1920-1940 to the history of architecture, the value of design and architecture archives and much more.
Now it is possible to see on video the interviews with researchers, teachers, journalists, editors and other professionals, which IDA proposes in its Old & Newsletter. Watch Cecilia Durán interviewing Francisco Liernur on our YouTube channel.
Jorge “Pancho” Francisco Liernur, architect, professor, and researcher, is an expert in modern architecture and urbanism. As part of our section #Epic Expert Opinion, this April we will chat with him about the Austral Group, Acosta, Williams, and Salamone, all of them participants of the period's turning points.
Epic: Feats of Argentine Design is a multi-format curatorial program that reviews a century of history, through the collection of Fundación IDA and other archives. It has the support of Cultural Promotion-Patronage, granted by the Ministry of Culture - Government of the City of Buenos Aires. During April and May, we presented the 1st chapter, 1920–1940.
