Special Guest Speakers at SHARE Talks Prague 2019
Leading the discussion of this unique event and addressing a welcome speech in the Official Opening of SHARE Prague Talk, in his role as chairman of the event, is architect Oleg Haman, president of the Czech Society of Architects.
Giancarlo MAZZANTI, Founder El Equipo Mazzanti, will focus on “The Game as a mechanism of social interaction”, and he has shared some interesting thoughts regarding this theme:
“We believe that the value of architecture lies not only in itself but in what it produces, in its performative capacities rather than in its representational capacities, that is why we are interested in an architecture that is defined by what it does and not by its substance.
Just like games, architecture is a social phenomenon based on rules; when they are used, they are appropriate. Games and architecture redefine relationships, roles and situations in already established contexts, being able to generate knowledge and learning.”
