Architecture talk by Smiljan Radic Clarke
The architect Smiljan Radic will hold a meeting at the iGuzzini illuminazione headquarter talking about his international expertise in architectural design. This is the 5th “Light-On” meeting, series of conferences, managed by iGuzzini in collaboration with MAXXI.
The work of Smiljan Radic moves freely across boundaries, avoiding any specific categorisation within one field of architecture. He studies different materials, their sensory and social conditions, rebuilding stories which seem to have been associated with the materials, and always in close collaboration with the sculptor Marcela Correa. He currently lives and works in Chile.
