A book I love

by

13 July, 2022

Each episode of A Book I Love is a conversation around a book that is special to one of the speakers. It is a companion text, in the words of Sara Ahmed, that in some way or another intersects with an idea of architecture.

Episode 1 : The Living Mountain by Nan Shepherd, a book chosen by Helen Thomas

Résumé

On the 10th of May, an incident occurred near Madame ETH’s kiosk, admittedly deliberate. In preparation for a short series of conversations for Women Writing Architecture called ‘A Book I Love’, a small group sat on a sofa to talk about Nan Shepherd’s book ‘The Living Mountain’, and to reflect on how it could be a book about architecture.

With:

Geraldine Tedder (curator and writer), Alicia Yerebakan, (painter, alter-ego is Madame ETH), Adam Caruso (architect and teacher), Helen Thomas, (architect, writer, and publisher), Emilie Appercé (architect)

Where:

In the entrance hall of the Department of Architecture (HIL building) at ETH  Zürich, Hönggerberg campus


 

Episode 2 : Real Estate by Deborah Levy, a book chosen by Tine Milz

Résumé

On a sunny morning of mid-July, the sun is already beating down on the small, unnamed square ambushed in the Zurich old town somewhere between the Neumarkt and the Leuengasse. A small group took up position on a bench to discuss the third volume of the living autobiography of the intriguing Deborah Levy.

With:

Tine Milz (theatre director), Geraldine Tedder (curator), Helen Thomas, (architect, writer, and publisher), Emilie Appercé (architect)

Where:

on a public square in Zürich old town
