CCA – FOUND IN TRANSLATION: PALLADIO – JEFFERSON EXPLORES QUESTIONS OF ARCHITECTURAL INFLUENCE AND ADAPTATION IN THE BUILDINGS OF ANDREA PALLADIO AND THOMAS JEFFERSON

Montréal, 7 October 2014 — From 8 October 2014 through 15 February 2015, the Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA) presents Found in Translation: Palladio – Jefferson, a photographic installation in the Octagonal Gallery and CCA Bookstore jointly instigated and developed by the architectural historian Guido Beltramini and the architectural and documentary photographer Filippo Romano.
AFFILIATED PUBLIC PROGRAMS
A discussion between Beltramini and Romano will be held in the Paul Desmarais Theatre at 6pm on the night of the installation opening, 8 October 2014. The vernissage begins at 7pm, and will feature a performance by DJ Jamie Bradbury.
On 9 October 2014 at 6pm, Romano will present his ongoing study of Nairobi’s expanding slums as part of the Learning from… series, which brings together experts to explore specific urban conditions and their relevance to the future development of cities. Romano’s photographs represent Nairobi through portraits of the residents, workers and communities who shape the built environment and, in turn, the local urban culture. The event will take place in English in the Paul Desmarais Theatre.
THE CCA
Celebrating the 25th anniversary of its opening in 2014, the CCA is an international research centre and museum founded on the conviction that architecture is a public concern. Based on its extensive collection, exhibitions, public programs, publications and research opportunities, the CCA is a leading voice in advancing knowledge, promoting public understanding, and widening thought and debate on architecture, its history, theory, practice, and role in society today.
