Join us for a discussion of teaching, drawing, and the foundations of architecture in celebration of Pier Paolo Tamburelli’s irreverent new primer Grundkurs: What is Architecture About? (MACK). Presenting the annotated sketches that form the basis of his lectures at TU Wein, this volume is a rich sourcebook of architectural ideas which pauses on the road to grand theories to learn from the intuitive processes of note-taking, drawing, and association. Pier Paolo will be in conversation with Tony Fretton and Dubravka Sekulić in the lecture theatre of the Architectural Association, followed by drinks and and a book signing.
Pier Paolo Tamburelli is a founding partner of baukuh and a former editor of San Rocco. He currently holds the Chair of Design Theory at the Technical University of Vienna.
Tony Fretton is a principal of Tony Fretton Architects and Professor of Architecture at London Metropolitan University.
Dubravka Sekulić is an architect, theorist, and educator. She is a Senior Tutor in Architecture at the Royal College of Art, London.

About Grundkurs: What is Architecture About?
In this collection of idiosyncratic lessons, architect Pier Paolo Tamburelli engages with the very foundations of architecture, proposing a series of new and open-ended perspectives on how we build the world. Presenting the annotated sketches that form the basis of his lectures, this volume is a sourcebook of architectural ideas which pauses on the road to grand theories to learn from the intuitive processes of notetaking, drawing, and association.
