Emilia Rabuini a loss in the Argentine Colour Community
It is with deep sorrow that I have to tell you that our colleague, Emilia Rabuini, died on May 15, 2010, at a young age, after a short and fulminant illness.
Some of you may remember Emilia from her oral presentation in AIC 2008 in Stockholm, where she exposed her research on the historical colors of La Boca neighborhood in Buenos Aires. Emilia was currently a member of the executive committee of the Argentine Color Group, as well as a member of the organizing committee of the next AIC Interim Meeting “Color and Food” to be held in Mar del Plata city.
She graduated as architect at the University of Buenos Aires, where she was also a teacher during some time. Following her inclinations as educator, she founded and directed the Pampa Center for Design, where color courses were usually taught in the context of architecture, interior design, and related professions.
We will remember Emilia for her projects, her paintings, her work related to the patrimonial chromatic values of La Boca district, and most of all, for her marvelous quality as a human being. Jose Luis Caivano SI-FADU-UBA, Ciudad Universitaria Buenos Aires
AIC Interim Meeting 2010, Mar del Plata, Argentina
Theme: Color and food: from the farm to the table October 12 – 15, 2010 Organized by the Argentine Color Group Venue: Hotel Provincal, Mar del Plata, Argentina
This choice takes into account that the theme of color in food was not addressed to in any previous AIC meeting. It comprises a variety of topics from technology to design, including architecture, biology, chemistry, engineering, physics, as well as social and economic aspects. The multidisciplinary character of the meeting will be reflected in the structure of the program. The aim is to cover every aspect of the study of color in food, which is where we derive the theme: “from the farm to the table”, as an antecedent , the Argentine Color Group has the experience of having organized four national symposia about color in food.
You will experience the friendly and open character of the Argentine peoples, who will warmly receive you in a country plenty of natural beauties and appealing cultural features.
Advanced registration before June 30!
