“Beirut is in our hearts, now and ever.” —Andrés Jaque

 

Andrés Jaque has donated Learning by Living, a signed digital print from a limited series (edition of 3 + 2 AP).

 

He writes, “Architectural environments can prompt in children a desire for exploration and inquiry. Learning by Living is a complex ecosystem that makes it possible for students to direct their own education through a process of self-driven, collective experimentation, intended to empower children’s capacity to deal with unpredictable challenges and potentials.”

 

He goes on: “Avoiding homogenization and unified standards, this architecture is a multiverse where the layered complexity of the environment becomes readable and experiential. It operates as an assemblage of different climates, situations, and regulations. Its vertical progression stacks a ground floor, engaged with the terrain, where classrooms for younger students are placed, and a second floor where students in intermediate levels coexist with water and soil tanks that nourish an indoor forest reaching the upper levels under a greenhouse structure. Classrooms for older students are organized around this inner forest, as in a small village: an ongoing maturity process that is translated into the growing capacity of students to explore the school ecosystem on their own.”

 

Jaque is an architect, writer, and curator. He is founder of the Office for Political Innovation, a New York/Madrid-based architectural practice, working at the intersection of design, research, and critical environmental practices. He has been awarded the Frederick Kiesler Prize and the Dionisio Hernández Gil Prize, among other honors; his work is part of the collection of MoMA in New York and the Art Institute of Chicago. 

 

Jaque is Professor at Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, where he is the Director of the Advanced Architectural Design Program. He has been Visiting Professor at Princeton University, and he has lectured extensively. Jaque is the Chief Curator of the Shanghai Biennale Bodies of Water, and the Co-Curator of Manifesta 12, The Planetary Garden: Cultivating Coexistence.
