Leading Spanish architect for C&CI 2010 Masterclass

C&CI-Fernando-Menis-for-2010-MasterclassSpanish architect, Fernando Menis, will be the primary mentor at the Cement & Concrete Institute’s  2010 International Masterclass and public lecture for architects.  C&CI architect, Daniel van der Merwe, says the Masterclass – the second to be presented by the Institute – forms part of an ongoing C&CI initiative in continuing architectural education in South Africa. The C&CI 2009 Masterclass was presented by leading Australian architects, Richard Leplastrier and Peter Stutchbury.

“The 2010 Masterclass will, as last year, incorporate site visits, lectures and design workshops on using concrete as a medium of expression while addressing issues around the natural environment for design inspiration,” says van der Merwe.

The Masterclass and public lecture by Fernando Menis will form part of the first national architecture festival in South Africa later this year. ArchitectureZA.2010  will take place in Johannesburg from 21 to 27 September.

Fernando Menis is an award winning architect sought after worldwide for his workshops and lectures. “His bold, experimental and expressive work in concrete is an inspiration for all who regard concrete as the new ‘liquid stone’ for the age we live in. His focus on social housing and environmentally responsible building with concrete will offer local architects a rare insight into possibilities for the future,” van der Merwe adds.

Registration for attendance at the C&CI Masterclass and public lecture opens in February 2010.
