On Thursday, June 13, 2013 at 7 pm at Galleria di Architettura “come se” Cityvision, the architecture laboratory based in Rome together with the Consulta Giovanile Architetti Roma, which promotes activities and reflections to enhance the image and professionalism of the architect, launches a new and original format of talk, curated by CityVision and called A Gentlemen's Duel.

Through images of projects and new concepts created specifically for the occasion, two international architects, Christoph Korner from GRAFT, an award winning design firm with offices in Los Angeles, Berlin, and Beijing and Heather Scott Peterson, a designer and artist, from New York, will compete in a real duel in which they will argue five pairs of contrasting words for a total of 10 keywords.

Keywords are:

1. Sick vs Wonder

2. Man vs City

3. Good vs Bad

4. Past/History vs. Future/Vision

5. Contextual vs. Conceptual

At the end of the talk skills, knowledge and life of the two players who have made architectural design - in various forms - their craft, will be protagonists of an open session where the audience can interact.

The event will be preceded by an introduction of Alessandro Ridolfi and Cityvision.
