Iñaqui Carnicero’s lecture 'Second Hand Spaces,' explores through his projects and studies the relationship between architecture and the economical context.
Iñaqui Carnicero’s rich career as an architect and design professor includes designing a building for C.E.U. Polytechnic University, the restoration of an Arab Tower in Guadalajara, and a cultural multi-use center in a former slaughterhouse of Matadero-Madrid, among others.
He has lectured at Cornell, Rice, Berkeley, Cervantes Institute in Prague, London Roca Gallery and many other prestigious institutions. He now tours the US as part of the University of Tennessee’s Robert B. Church III Memorial Lecture Series and AIA|DC Architecture Week. In his lecture, Carnicero will explore current opportunities and constraints within architectural practice, such as what the economic context of a project may offer in the design process. The Second Hand Spaces lecture will demonstrate projects built by Carnicero's office in the last ten years in three categories or actions: redefining, reusing and adapting.
