The first lecture is about Working Ideas by Critics in Architecture

“He has a right to criticize, who has a heart to help.” ― Abraham Lincoln

David Hutama will share lecture about working Ideas by critics in architecture. There were times when architecture changed because of paradigm breakdown just by nature of human, technology and civilisation. It established by success and failure. Critic which is a Greek derivation of the word κριτής (krités), meaning a person who offers reasoned judgment or analysis, value judgment, interpretation or observation. Critic has the position to move public opinion because of his or her credibility, reputation, depth of analysis.

Critics become complex because there are various skill which is needed such as history, precedents, or understanding elements of architecture which then judge one work in process creating excellence in working architecture.

We invited students and fresh graduates for our mini lecture series or brown bag.

It’s all about sharing working ideas by critics in architecture. It’s all discussing the possible answer of :
1) What or How is the core of critics in architecture ?
2) What is needed for preparing good critics to evaluate architecture/ design performance ?
3) What or How is the to establish opinion in architecture given by the reality ?
4) Why the critic is important ? or what is the ethic to maintain critical opinion ?
