Interior Design Lecture: Fernando Diniz Moreira
RIT's interior design program presents Brazilian architect and historian Fernando Diniz Moreira, who is delivering an on-campus lecture titled, "Breathing Surfaces: Brazilian Architecture, 1930-1950." The talk is scheduled for 5:30-7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 27, in MAGIC Spell Studios' Wegmans Theater.
Moreira’s area of interest lies in the theory and history of architecture and the history of modern urbanism, with a focus on Brazil and Latin America. His talk will focus on modern architecture in Brazil, specifically the high-rise building facades in Rio de Janeiro and the use of elements such as cobogo. Cobogo is a type of hollow brick wall originally made from concrete and later made in ceramic and other materials that is used as a skin on vertical surfaces.
