The English word Spirit (from Latin spiritus “breath”) has many different meanings and connotations, most of them relating to a non-corporeal substance contrasted with the material body. It can also refer to the consciousness or personality and it can also have the sense of “ghost”, i.e. a manifestation of the spirit of a deceased person. The term may also refer to any incorporeal or immaterial being, such as demons or deities. However, spirit is an alcoholic beverage produced by distillation of a mixture produced from alcoholic fermentation as well. This process purifies it and removes diluting components, for the purpose of increasing its proportion. How could Spirits be related to inevitably changeable notion of architecture? In the face of today’s interrelated multilayered realities, should architecture be on the side of physicality or transcendent? What new modalities can architecture assume in the 21st century?

This and many other topics will be presented and discussed by a selection of international experts:

Takaharu & Yui Tezuka (TEZUKA Architects, Tokyo)
Vinko Penezić & Krešimir Rogina (PENEZIĆ & ROGINA architects, Zagreb)

Special guests:
