GEORGES DESCOMBES ABOUT THE RENATURATION OF THE RIVER AIRE AT SHARE FORUM 2017

GEORGES DESCOMBES ABOUT THE RENATURATION OF THE RIVER AIRE AT SHARE FORUM 2017
GEORGES DESCOMBES ABOUT THE RENATURATION OF THE RIVER AIRE AT SHARE FORUM 2017 Architect Georges Descombes, founder partner at Atelier Descombes Rampini in Switzerland will hold a lecture about the "Renaturation of the River Aire" at SHARE Forum 2017 Bucharest on 21-22 March. Having continuously expanded his studies in architecture since his diploma from the School of Architecture in Geneva in 1969 by graduating from the AA School of Architecture in London in 1973 and receiving in 2009 the "John R. Bracken Fellow in Landscape Architecture" from the Pennsylvania State College Penn State University, George descombes has developed a personal ethical approach to architecture. His design aesthetic principles follow three main ideas that define his work with the history and intrinsic character of place: the idea of the minimal insertion of identifiable interventions which are themselves the subject of change and reversibility. His experience includes also a teaching career; Descombes has taught at several schools including UC Berkeley, Harvard, Penn, and the University of Geneva, where he was Professor of Architecture and founder of the graduate program in landscape architecture. Descombes proposes instead another strategy: to use this existing canal as a starting point, keeping it as a reference for the evolution of the landscape, and to alter it by juxtaposing a vast divagation space as a new riverbed. This new association is described as a linear garden which has the ability to transform and give birth to a new fluvial geomorphology based on a diamond-shaped diagram. Contrasting with the old gesture of fixing the river in one place, the project makes way to an indeterminate evolution of the river course. See more about this subtle landscape intervention at the Georges Descombes' lecture at SHARE Forum 2017 Bucharest on 21-22 March.
