Eladio Dieste

Advancing Architecture through Material Systems Innovation From 4 - 22 October 2010 will be a series of events, like workshops, discussion or exhibition, at the AHO Gallery in Norway, portraying the Uruguayan engineer and architect Eladio Dieste. Eladio Dieste (1917 – 2000) , the eminent Uruguayan engineer and architect, contributed numerous groundbreaking inventions in designing and constructing reinforced and pre-stressed brick structures of remarkable beauty and structural capacity. While his work has received renewed interest since the late 1990s and has been analyzed in detail, concise and detailed efforts to reexamine the work with regards to its potential for contemporary architectural design have yet to take place. To commence this effort and to introduce Dieste’s work to the Scandinavian context is the aim of the exhibition, symposium and construction experiments.
Brick Construction Experiments Gallery Discussion
22 October 2010 - from 10-00 to 16-00
AHO Construction Hall
The discussion will focus on the various experiments that were conducted during the brick construction experiments workshop.

Eladio Dieste Symposium
08 October 2010 - from 09-30 to 18-00
AHO Auditorium
The symposium will introduce the seminal work of the late Eladio Dieste to the Norwegian context. The symposium is organized in two sessions. The first part will examine the works of Eladio Dieste from various perspectives. Acclaimed Dieste researchers and experts will present their approach to Dieste’s work during the first session. The second session takes a broader outlook into how Dieste’s work might inform specific architectural research and further innovation potential in designing and constructing with bricks. The final talk of the second session will focus on questions of sustainability
Eladio Dieste Exhibition
08 – 22 October 2010 - from 10-00 to 16-00
AHO Gallery
The exhibition focuses on the innovation of structural types by Eladio Dieste, made from reinforced and pre-stressed brick, all made from brick, and introduces related works from his substantial oeuvre to the Scandinavian context.

Brick Construction Experiments Workshop
04 – 22 October 2010 - from 10-00 to 16-00
AHO Construction Hall
The brick construction workshop will focus on a number of experiments that are informed by specific works by Eladio Dieste and develop these further to explore their untapped architectural potentials.
