Iván Capdevila, PhD and M.Arch at the Bartlett School of Architecture, is Associate Professor at the University of Alicante, where he got his degree in Architecture in 2003. As head of PLAYstudio he has been awarded in several international contests, including 5 first prizes in Europan, a prestigious biannual competition. 
SUPER-ORDINARINESS presents an approach to architectural practice from everyday objects and images that condense the identity of each culture in which PLAYstudio’s projects operate. From a position away from the canons of the discipline and an endogamous referential world, the lecture raises play and ludic thinking as creative tools to develop new ways of living which turn to be empowered by the feeling of belonging, identity, familiarity and kinship. At the end, PLAYstudio’s housing projects attempt to turn ordinary and common objects and things into designs of extraordinary architectural value. Isn’t it SUPER?
