The Cino Zucchi architect's lecture, titled “The Campsite Shower Theory - In Praise Of Just-Out-Of-Time Architecture", will be held on tuesday, september 19, at the Italian Cultural Institute in London

The countdown has begun for the London Design Festival, which runs in the British capital from 16 to 24 September 2017. Once again this year INTERNI will be present, together with the Istituto Italiano di Cultura in London, with an important event: a lecture by the architect Cino Zucchi entitled The Campsite Shower Theory – In Praise Of Just-Out-Of-Time Architecture.

Using the ironic metaphor of the “campsite shower”, Cino Zucchi, one of Italy’s leading proponents in the field of architecture and urban design, in conversation with Robert Mull, Professor of the University of Brighton, will focus on a crucial point that separates architecture and urban environments from easy to eliminate technical objects: the obligatory delay between needs and the response, and the capacity of buildings and cities to change over time by taking on roles and functions other than those for which they were conceived.

The event will be opened by the Italian Ambassador to the United Kingdom, Pasquale Terracciano, followed by Gilda Bojardi, the editor of INTERNI, the Interiors and Contemporary Design magazine published by the Mondadori Group, and Marco Delogu, director of the Istituto Italiano di Cultura.

The event, which is open to the public, will take place at 7 pm on Tuesday 19 September at

the headquarters of the Istituto Italiano di Cultura in 39 Belgrave Square, London, SW1X 8NX).

The event will be followed by an Italian-style aperitive.

The event has been organised in collaboration with: Baglioni Hotels, Kartell and Marchesi Frescobaldi.
