KOLDO LUS ARANA
Koldo Lus Arana will discuss his ongoing research on the interactions between comics and architecture, exploring the work of contemporary architects like Jimenez Lai and Willem Jan Neutelings who use comics and cartoons, as well as the presence of architecture in comics, such as those created by Chris Ware or François Schuiten.

He earned a Master in Design Studies from Harvard GSD in 2008, and a PhD from the University of Navarra in 2013 with the dissertation Futuropolis: Comics and the Transmediatic Construction of the City of the Future. His main lines of research deal with prospective architecture and the interactions between architecture and media. He currently teaches Theory and History of Architecture in the University of Zaragoza (Spain).
This lecture is presented in partnership with MAS Context. MAS Context is a quarterly journal that addresses issues that affect the urban context.
