The course provides an introduction to the work of André Corboz (1928-2012), a historian from Geneva, known for his research that bridged architecture, urbanism and visual art and who held the chair of history of urbanism at ETH Zurich. In 2014 AAM acquired Corboz’s scientifc papers, personal library and photography which now form part of the «Collezioni d’autore» of the library while serving as a basis for future research as well as the current website and exhibition project, that will be shown at Teatro dell’architettura in fall 2022. As first in-depth study of Corboz, this exhibition assesses how his approach toward urban and rural territories remains valid to this day. After a presentation of the archive, its collections and the curatorial concept, Corboz Lab is involved with the preparation of the exhibition and website. Course participants will collaborate directly with the project team led by André Bideau.
