Guilherme Wisnik talks about Paulo Mendes da Rocha in the exhibition space

The architect, lecturer and author Guilherme Wisnik will be giving a talk on 16 December at 3pm at the "Built Geographies: Paulo Mendes da Rocha", a lecture on the theme "Paulo Mendes da Rocha: the politics of discourse". Admission is free, subject to capacity. 
A great friend of Paulo Mendes da Rocha, the co-curator of the exhibition "Infinito Vão - 90 Anos de Arquitetura Brasileira", which was on show at Casa da Arquitectura until September 2019, will create a bisector between the work and the person of the Brazilian Pritzker, linking the two exhibitions on show: in the exhibition nave, the exhibition relating to his 70 years of work; and in the Casa Gallery, an approach to the person and the humanist.

Guilherme Wisnik (1972) is an Associate Professor at the Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism at the University of São Paulo, where he is Vice-Director (2023-2026).
