YONA FRIEDMAN Spatial Visions
Fonds de Dotation Denise et Yona Friedman
Yona Friedman’s concepts of architecture are closely linked to the dynamics of social structures and the variability of the users’ needs. These topics which he has emphasized from the beginning of his work have gained even more importance in present times with the current developments in migration. It is due to his own history as a migrant that his ideas and his engagement for deeply human architecture and society are based on existential experience. Being both radical and future-oriented, Friedman’s “utopies réalisables,” have made a great impact in the context of the architectural avant-garde. The presentation will show a selection of them.
Yona Friedman, born in 1923, is one of the most fascinating architectural theorists of our time.
