I will be giving a paper at the Design Ecologies Symposium at the Architectural Association, London, on February 4th. The line up for the day is as follows:
Design Ecologies: The Unprimed Canvas
Kate Davies and Shaun Murray
1100 Ecological Design Visions
Visionary thinking on methodologies of communicating an architecture along with new models and ecological contribution.
Shaun Murray (Eniatype, London)
Jon Goodbun (University of Westminster, London)
Timothy Morton (UC Davies, California)
1200 Notational Design Visions
Notational systems within architectural education used as a communication tool have made the composition of architecture an activity like the composition of fiction: the activity of communication.
Kate Davies/ Emmanuel Vercruysse (Liquid Factory)
Bastian Glaessner (Lynn Fox, Blink productions)
1330 Instructional Design Visions
There are many kinds of relationships between participant and environment within context, design and communication. An extremely important one is who communicates with whom and who instructs whom.
Kjell Yngve Petersen (IT Copenhagen)
Felix Robbins (Make Architects, London)
1430 Aesthetical Design Visions
Aesthetic experience is one of the most common ways to value our environment. Whether it is having a walk in the park, cycling through a country lane, or just sitting in your garden, we can appreciate the aesthetic qualities. We could go on to say that we should be developing environmental sensitivity through aesthetic experience.
James Moore (University of Falmouth)
Bruce McLean (Bruce Mclean, London)
Through original design exploration, this symposium proffers a critical vision towards the built environment. These conceptions challenge the everyday education of architectural design by offering a transdisciplinary framework for design production.
